£3 on the door. We are a cashless venue.

Portsmouth’s hugely popular Future Folk evenings are back and coming to a new venue this spring!

The evenings, co-hosted by folk artist and promoter Megan Linford, have seen some of the finest local folk, roots, americana and country acts perform as well as musicians from across the pond and beyond!

Inundated with requests, Megan is now relaunching the evening in the new venue of the Guildhall’s Square Kitchen with ELECTRIC EDEN headlining the first event, supported by Megan herself.

Megan said “I’m so passionate about the music scene in Portsmouth, and I love the city, but as a young folk musician I never really felt like I had a place in the scene, and there was never really anywhere for someone like me. We created Future Folk to provide a platform where emerging folk and roots artists could play their music to a new audience and its success blew us away and showed that we were on to something. I am so excited to be bringing it back to a new location in the heart of the city and the Guildhall is not only a fantastic concert venue but has some lovely intimate spaces such as the Square Kitchen which is perfect for events like Future Folk. We are looking forward to hosting both new and familiar artists and audiences and to raise the profile of a genre that is part of the city’s musical DNA”.
