Folklore has supported and championed original, diverse and up-and-coming music wholeheartedly since its inception and is the definition of a grassroots live music venue and community space.
For those that know us as a nightspot - by day we are also a progressive innovative community hub, focusing on the wellbeing of our local residents, far-reaching community and beyond, with efforts including but not limited to homelessness workshops, employment projects and rehabilitation placements for refugees and ex-offenders, and mentorship schemes for the vulnerable, disabled, elderly and marginalised.
We're as independent as they come and although we've faced down plenty of challenges in our 6 years on Hackney Road, this is absolutely our toughest yet - and we have no safety net to speak of.
We're working on diversifying our business in these turbulent times, and in doing so will continue to support the bands, artists and parties that are our lifeblood, but we need your help too!
Anything you can spare will help us survive and return in brighter times, better, stronger, and weirder than ever :)
Lots of love Minouche & The Folklore Family x
