COVID-19 - Folk House Closure Details

Added: Friday 27 March 2020

We hope you are well and keeping safe.

Summer Term Cancellation
Due to further lockdown restrictions from the Government, we have decided to cancel the whole of the Summer term.
This has not been an easy decision, but we think it’s the best one for everyone’s safety.

Autumn Term

Our Autumn term will be starting in September with enrolments due to take place in late June/ early July (subject to change). We will send out information about the confirmed enrolment date in the coming months.

The Autumn Term will be a 12-week term with courses running either 6 or 12 weeks long. Saturday workshops will run every Saturday and we will so be doing some one-off two-day workshop.

Term dates - Saturday 12th September – Sunday 13th December 2020

Half term – 26th - 30th October

Enrolment date – End of June/beginning of July (phone only)

Anyone who has booked onto the Summer Term or has a voucher/credit will have priority booking for Autumn Term and will be contacted separately.

Will not be taking any Autumn term bookings until our enrolment date when the programme will be released.

Vouchers and Memberships – 6-month extensions

All vouchers/ credits have been extended by 6 months to allow people to use them on the Autumn Term. We will not be taking any more memberships until we reopen in September. All current memberships have been extended by 6 months.


It is looking unlikely for us to reopen the building until later in the Summer.

It is likely that come September, some social distancing rules will be in place. We will be doing everything in line with Government guidelines and making sure we are not putting our customers, tutors, and staff at risk.

If we are still in a position where schools are unable to open and we are unable to run the Autumn Term. Online courses will replace many of the classes and refunds will be issued for classes that can not be offered online.

If you would like to get in touch with us emails to our email address will be answered on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. There will be someone in the Folk House most Tuesdays and Thursdays if you would like to speak to someone in person. Please leave a message on the answering machine and someone will get back to you.

 Please bear with us as we are limited to two staff members, working part-time.

Thank you for your continued support.

Kind Regards,

The Bristol Folk House Team
