Lyceum PictureThe Lyceum Folk Club of Newport provides Acoustic music every Thursday at the Lyceum Tavern in Malpas Road Newport. This is less than 100 metres from J26 of the M4 on the Newport side.  There is usually ample parking in Malpas Road just up from the pub, but get there early on guest nights.

The Lyceum Tavern ( has been hosting Folk music in Newport for many years and we took over that tradition in 2011. Come along to play or just listen to others.

We welcome ALL acoustic instruments and musical styles and players from beginners to virtuosos.  We are not averse to a bit of poetry or purple prose  either.

We use the Function Room upstairs at the back and the atmosphere is terrific, whether there's just a few of us or a packed house.  Come along and find out for yourself!.

We charge 2.00 on the door, except when we have a Guest Artist when you will have to pay a bit more  Find out how much here.

Doors open 8pm on Guest Nights and 8:30pm on Singer's Nights.

The Club is also on FaceBook.  Our page is managed by one of the club regulars.  He is also called Trevor, and is a proper Welshman from here in Newport, unlike me, although I've lived here a while now.  Please check it out for an alternative view on what the club is about.
