We also have a new website for current news and events:


The new Victoria University Folk Music Club is hosting a mini festival in Wellington city over the weekend of 29 September to 1 October 2017, featuring a concert, workshops, sessions and a ceilidh, showcasing the local Irish and Scottish traditional music scene, and young Wellington musicians.

So come in from the cold and warm up with some tunes, whether in concert, for a dance, or in some informal sessions around town.
