MAP AND MEMBERSHIP


  • "THE MUSIC INSTITUTE" TICKETS AND MEMBERSHIP

    The club has been well supported in its eight-year existence and most of the
    audience attend regularly. We therefore offer the opportunity for people to
    take out membership for just 3.00 per person which entitles them to a
    reduction on the price of their admission to the club for a year from
    October (2015) to the following September (2016). This discount applies to all events
    organised by the West Surrey Folk Consortium, i.e. both the folk club at
    the Institute and concerts and dances elsewhere.

    MEMBERSHIP: OCTOBER 2016 - SEPTEMBER 2017 - 3.00 per person

    Although we can sell tickets online we are unable to sell membership using
    WeGotTickets. Therefore if you buy a ticket at full price in advance, either
    online or by a cheque in the post, and decide to take out membership on the
    night then we will give you a 1.00 refund on your ticket.

    WeGotTickets

    The club room can only accommodate 70 and we often sell out so, to help avoid
    disappointment tickets will be available for purchase in advance.

    The Guildford Institute entrance

    The entrance to the Guildford Institute is in Ward Street. The
    folk club meets on the first floor in the Assembly Room.

    The Guildford Institute is a no-smoking venue.


  • ACCESS FOR THE DISABLED, THE BAR, RUNNING TIMES
    AND FLOOR SINGERS

    The building has recently been refurbished to make it fully accessible to people in
    wheelchairs, including access by lift to all three floors and disabled toilets.

    The Institute is licensed to sell alcohol but can only run a limited bar service -
    bottled beers and a small range of wines and spirits - plus tea and coffee.
    The bar is open until 10.00pm.

    We are required to finish the evening at 10.30pm and the building vacated by
    11.00pm. This means that timings are tight. The doors open at 7.30pm and the music
    begins at 8.00pm.

    Please note that we usually only have time to fit in a couple of floorsingers. It is
    best to phone in advance - 01483 871443 - to see whether a spot is available.
