Bristol Folk House - Learning for pleasure
Join us - Become a co-op member

the Folk House Charity

The Bristol Folk House is a self-funding charity and we receive no money from the government or local council.

Therefore, we rely heavily on co-op memberships to keep us afloat. As a co-op member you will be able to enrol one day before the general public, will be the first to receive our new prospectuses, will be able to sign up quickly using just your name and co-op number and will be entitled to discounts in lots of Park Street shops. Added to this you get that warm fuzzy feeling of knowing they’re supporting the Folk House and everything we do!


Co-op Membership

As we are a self-funding organisation, the Bristol Folk House relies heavily on the support of our Co-op members to continue running the huge range of courses and workshops that on this website. For just £10 per year you can become a member of the Folk House Co-op and take advantage of these lovely incentives:


  • Folk House Prospectus Straight to Your Door

  • Exclusive Enrolment Day Enrolments are open to Co-op members one day before everyone else.
  • Quick Enrolment
    Just give us your name and co-op number and away you go!
  • Local Shop Discounts
    Co-op members receive discounts in lots of friendly shops local to Park Street
  • AGM
