The Ram Club
BBC Radio 2 'Folk Club of the Year' 2007
Important - Change of Ram email address for publicity and mailouts
BT have finally made it impossible to use our old address for Ram Club publicity and email-outs so from now one please use email@example.com for emailing publicity material or advising mailing list updates. This is the address we will be sending our newsletters out from in future.
Please note that the email for enquiries by artists to Bob and Maggie remains the same firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
HANNAH ELIZABETH, KATHY PILKINTON and JESS DISTILL are three very talented young maidens starting out on the Folk scene. Already making a splash, they make their music with infectious enthusiasm, bringing their own style and breathing new life into traditional songs. Their voices blend effortlessly in heavenly harmony, either unaccompanied or with tasteful accordion, ukulele, guitar, violin and flute. They have been blown away by the praise and encouragement they've received from the folk community so far, and in just one year have found themselves playing dozens of gigs around the country, from folk clubs and fundraisers to festivals. In recent months, Said The Maiden have played as support for some big names including The Fisherman's Friends and Dave Swarbrick! Young torch-bearers of the tradition, these ladies are going places!

BOO is a Ram favourite. We were the club where he made his performing comeback in 2001 and he loves coming back! His wonderful album 'A Live One' was recorded at that very gig in the old venue, and afterwards he proclaimed himself "re-energised, a very happy man". He's toured and recorded to great acclaim ever since. For those who are new to Boo, he used to be the front man of 80s Rock group THE BIBLE and has had a parallel career as a top producer with the likes of EDDI READER and THE CORRS, a songwriter for many and a sideman and session musician to the great and good. Those gorgeous, melodic, memorable, thoughtful and highly nickable songs just keep coming and he spreads them far and wide among the grateful doyens of Folk and Rock. On his album Harmonograph, he tried and failed to condense over 400 songs he'd written for others into an album's worth so he just did the ones he fancied. And it's brilliant! Welcome home Boo.
