IMPORTANT NOTE: Having had to be temporarily resident through April at the Ukrainian Community Centre, Edinburgh FC will be back at The Pleasance Cabaret Bar for the next gig, May 1 with Dave Burland and onwards from then until the end of the season on June 29 with Tim Edey.

Apart from the change of venue (again!) everything else is stet - showtimes, doors open, performers. So until we will continue to start at 8.00pm (doors/bar 7:30pm) to 10.45pm (approx) on Wednesday evenings in (click for map) The Pleasance Cabaret Bar, 60 The Pleasance, Edinburgh EH8 9TJ. For information not obtainable elsewhere call m: 07968 131737.

Click on each performer's name for info about them and to go to the on-line box office to buy advance tickets when available. We try to provide advance tickets up to (approximately) two months ahead so if you find a box office link unavailable here it just means we haven't got round to that gig yet. You could, however, go directly to our on-line box office here to see if the show is on sale there.

Shows

Now in its 45th season (2018-2019), the club meets every Wednesday (summer and xmas breaks excepted) and starts promptly at 8.00pm with an opening act, maybe two, followed by the headliner's first set.

After an interval there is usually a song from one of our residents, followed by a short set from the opening act, the raffle(!), and the headliner's second set. We aim to finish around 10.45pm or thereabouts.

Tickets are available in advance for each event from by clicking on the on-line box office links in the list of shows.
Often you can get a ticket at the door from 7.30pm on the night (subject to availability).
Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates on sold-out shows or cancellations due to weather.

In general ticket prices are ...
£10.00 (general/non-members)
£9.00 (usual concessions)
£7.00 (EFC members and any card carrying member of any folk club elsewhere in the world)
£5.00 (Any matriculated student from any college or university anywhere in the world.)
