Welcome to the Cross Keys Inn Folk Club
Built in 1745 in the heart of Saddleworth lies the 'Cross Keys Inn'. It is situated on the old Marsden Packhorse route and first opened as a Tavern in 1753. (Some believe that Jim was actually first at the bar on opening night!)
The Inn is host to one of the longest running Folk Clubs in the North West of England and is hosted by Jim Schofield. We meet every Wednesday evening in the much acclaimed "Buckley's Kitchen", a small intimate room with a stone flagged floor and a big, ancient cooking range. The club is regularly visited by artists from home and abroad who never fail to entertain. Why not come along for an evening of good music and entertainment, we are quite sure you will not be dissapointed.
