The Keevil Folk Night has been an annual event for several years. Usually – but not always! – held in the village hall in March, it has become one of the most successful events in the village calendar, and attracts some of the finest folk acts both locally and nationally.
NEW DATE!! FOLK ON THE BOAT – FRIDAY 16th JULY 2021
We have had to change the date due to the Boat company not operating until after the original date we had planned in June. Everything is obviously still reliant on Covid restrictions being lifted.
A return evening trip along the Kennet and Avon Canal on a broad beam boat The John Rennie. We’ll embark from the entrance to the Somerset Coal Canal at the Dundas Aqueduct, Limpley Stoke and journey to the Avoncliff Aqueduct. There will be a barbecue cooked supper (vegetarian options available) included and an onboard licensed bar available. Music will be provided by the popular folk duo Jan and Ian.
Tickets £25.00 including the return boat trip, supper and entertainment. Arrive 5.30pm at the Dundas Aqueduct (parking at the Somerset Coal Canal Wharf), Limpey Stoke, our boat will leave at 6.00pm prompt.

Folk Night March 2019
Janet, Norman, Rachel & Tony would like to thank all those who supported the folk night – another sell-out evening and overwhelming success – from opening newcomers Fly Yeti Fly (we want to see more of you two!), welcome returns for Phil Deverall and Feral Beryl, and the legendary Folklaw lads setting the stage alight as they closed the show.
All proceeds fund future folk events. A few photographs from the night by Sarah Dow…. click on an image to see it full size/in a gallery.
