Cyril Holder

We are saddened to learn of Cyril's untimely death on 7th January. Cyril was a familiar face at Ruskin House and his friendly greetings and banter were well known to those who visited Ruskin. He was a loyal supporter of the club for many years and he will be greatly missed.

Farewell Cyril. The place will not be the same without you.

Sincere condolences to your family from all at Ruskin House

The funeral will take place at Croydon Crematorium on Friday 30th January 2015 at 3.45pm and afterwards at Ruskin House.

The Croydon Folk and Blues Club meets every Sunday evening from 8:00 at Ruskin House, 23 Coombe Road, Croydon, Surrey (see how to find us)Everyone is welcome - not just musicians, and those of all abilities are encouraged to "have a go" if they want to - it doesn't have to be folk OR blues either! Originals or covers are all welcome. The music starts around 8:30 with the regular sessions. An hour later there is usually a 'hotspot' which features a special guest. After the hotspot it's back to the regular session and the evening usually ends featuring club organiser Garry Davis and his harmonica with other musicians and singers. It is a very friendly, relaxed and supportive atmosphere and only costs 2, which also enters you into the fabulous end-of-evening prize draw. Real ale and a wide range of drinks are also available from the main bar till 10:45, served with skill and charm by your hosts Don and Cyril. Ruskin House also hosts Croydon Folk Song Club on Mondays.

If you would like to play at Ruskin House on a Sunday, prepare about five numbers and make yourself known to Garry when you arrive. If it's busy and you're at the end of the line, you may not get on till late. We don't generally use amplification, even for vocals, because unless you're using a keyboard or MIDI device, electric bass or guitar, we find that unplugged is plenty loud enough. This can be quite a challenge for those used to being miked up! The adjacent Cedar Room, which we use for large-scale events, has full PA facilities (and a bar). In the summer we often have a barbeque on the huge patio.
