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.

Wow!!! what an impressive line up of instruments Mike Billington brought along on Wednesday night. An array of bagpipes from all over the world, all made from exotic timbers from Applewood to Bubinga and Cherry to Ash. every one of the sounded fantastic. If you hear of this artist coming to your club you'd do well not to miss him. Well done Mike!
This week we have an old favourite back with us once more, Phil Hare is here again to entertain us so you better get in and get a seat early. We always have a full house when Phil is with us. Some of us have waited almost a year for this show. So.....
Don't be late. See you there 8:30 as usual
