About Us

The Lyceum Tavern has been hosting Folk music in Newport for the past ten years or so.

To continue that tradition, the Lyceum Folk Club of Newport was inaugurated on Thursday 31 March 2011 when Newport Folk Club moved out.

Many members of the Lyceum Folk Club of Newport are former members of Newport Folk Club, and some remain members of both clubs, and there is enough demand for live music in Newport on a Thursday evening that both clubs continue to thrive.

Our Values

Openness: At the Lyceum Folk Club of Newport, everyone is welcome provided you show other members the respect that you would expect to receive from them.

Teamwork: We have a notional committee for legal reasons, but we are a collective, and so all our regular members have an equal say in how the club is run.

Entertainment: At the Lyceum Folk Club of Newport, we do our best to make our club nights entertaining and include an eclectic mix of acoustic musical and poetic talents.


Please browse our Web site for more information about the Club. If you have any questions or would like to speak with someone from the Club, please e-mail us at or check out our Contacts page.
