The Ram Club
BBC Radio 2 'Folk Club of the Year' 2007
The Ram Club is one of the finest venues in the South of England for folk, acoustic and roots music. Our aim is to create a relaxed and intimate atmosphere to allow you to enjoy the music to the fullest. We meet on most Fridays at the Old Cranleighan Sports Club in Thames Ditton, Surrey and we pride ourselves in booking top artistes from the UK and beyond to perform for you close up in our convivial surroundings.
Friday night is Ram Club night, so come along and enjoy a great night out. With the odd exception we don’t sell tickets in advance – just turn up! The bar is usually open at 7.30pm and you can wait in there while we do the sound check before flinging the doors open at 8.15pm. If you’ve never been before just give us a try and we’ll make you welcome!
...and if you are a full-time student we’ll give you a generous discount.
He's back! Yes, it's time for another injection of musical insanity from a man who is half Heath Robinson half John Williams. His mad inventions and brilliant acoustic guitar playing make him one of the funniest & most original entertainers around. The cardboard tube double bass, the musical shoelaces, the Blue Danube on condom harp, the Nutcracker played on the tu-tu xylophone, duelling banjos on double banjo, his 3-minute rendition of Riverdance all have to be seen to be believed. What next - a cardboard version of the Hadron Collider that plays chopsticks? Imagine if he was the first human an invading alien met! Mr Smith makes people cry with laughter in every conceivable type of venue in the UK and the world over as well as on TV. As a miner of bizarre musical nuggets and fuel for the imagination, this man is fracking brilliant!

We return to normality with a duo who are not only at the top of their game but are Ram institutions. As many of you will know, you will rarely hear a more exquisite and virtuosic blend of guitar and Irish harp, and tonight Chris and Maire will be delighting us with their 'Celtic Christmas Strings' show. There's something truly beautiful about harps at any time, but at Christmas their alchemy on harp and guitar creates a very special magic. This show features a breathtaking blend of traditional Irish music, swing jazz and bluegrass, along with festive favourites given a fresh voice with arrangements that are intricate, inventive, moving and beautiful. Performed in the heart-warming style characteristic of them, this will be a spellbinding treat for the season. And you can expect the usual Ram Club festive experience too, with mulled wine, local Real Ale, flavoursome nibbles, a mega-raffle and seasonal songs from sundry stalwarts. Happy Christmas!
