Vic & Tina Smith's Website


This main function of this website was formerly to advertise events at the very successful Folk at the Royal Oak, Lewes venture which was organised by Vic & Tina. We decided that, after 50 years of running folk clubs, the last 23 at the Royal Oak, it was time for us to step down. The club was still running very successfully and we did hope that others would step up to take over the organisation. Sadly, this did not happen and the club closed at the end of 2013.

We are now using the site for a number of other folk music activities that we are involved in and you can see them listed on the left of the screen. click on each of these to go to that part of the website.

Our most recent venture is involvement in the Folk In The Chapel series of concerts which take place on the fourth Sunday afternoon of the month. All the proceeds from these concerts will go to the admirable self-help disabled group, The Oyster Project.
