Start time: Please arrive ready for a prompt 8.00pm start. You are of course welcome to arrive later in which case you will get a turn in the round following your arrival.
Our format is a singaround and the M/C usually passes from person to person around the room.
Our Music is folk - traditional and modern - so we welcome singers of folk songs, players of folk tunes, acoustic instruments, single person or joint offerings. We do try to keep our idenitity as an acoustic folk music club.
At the half time break, take the opportunity to socialise and discuss music.
The bar is available all through the evening - a ring of the bell will bring one of the bar staff through from the main bar to the function room.
Ron Jamson would like to thank all members of the Broadside Folk Club who attended Jane's funeral and/or celebration event. Ron would also like to thank all those who sent cards and floral tributes.
It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Jane Jamson who died on Friday 4th. September 2015. Jane had been fighting cancer for some time and had not long returned home after a prolonged stay in hospital.
Ron and Jane were stalwarts of the club for many years, and until Jane's illness, used to sit in the right alcove. Invariably introduced as 'Ron and the lovely Jane', Ron sang from his huge fund of folk songs and Jane would always accompany with percussion.
Jane will be greatly missed by so many people. We are thankful that she had so many friends and a loving husband and family to support her.
A Celebration of Jane's life
Jane's funeral was held at The Oaks Crematorium Havant on Wednesday 16th September at 10-45, followed by her life celebration at The Square Tower, Old Portsmouth from 12-2pm.
Many of Jane's friends from the Broadside attended the funeral and also contributed to music in the Square Tower in her memory.
On Wednesday, 31st September, the Broadside, led by Mick and Marion, recorded 'You are my Sunshine'. on of Jane's favourite tunes and this was requested by her son Matthew.
