Folklore is an arts venue at its heart - we're a public live music venue pushing up-and-coming talent and are closely connected to Meadows In The Mountains festival in Bulgaria. We've also hosted poetry jams, live comedy, art exhibitions, art markets, sculpture, painting and mixed media shows on behalf of galleries, curators and directly through the artists themselves.

Performers and artists of all kinds looking to showcase their work are encouraged to get in touch - it's exactly what we're about!
