Bringing folk and music
223 Roberttown Lane
From 8:30pm Friday nights
The CROPPERS is essentially a
performers club, (singers, musicians,
poets, story tellers etc) with 1 or 2 guest
nights during the year, the main one to
celebrate the club's birthday in July.
**The club will be closed for the
CLECKHEATON FOLK FESTIVAL
usually on the first weekend of JULY**
Otherwise we are open all year round
unless Christmas and New Year fall on
or near a Friday.

If you can't bring
just bring yourself!
Whether you come to perform
or just to listen, you'll find a
Friday night visit to The
Croppers is a great way to
start your weekend.
Apart from an entertaining and
varied mix of both folk and
popular music styles - plus
some humorous poetry - you'll
meet some of the friendliest
people this side of the
Pennines, who'll make you feel
welcome the minute you walk
through the door.
All we ask of those attending the Croppers is that they follow our simple
house rules which are, to the vast majority of people, common sense:
1. If possible please do not enter or leave the room whilst someone
is performing. Not always possible we know.
2. Mobile phones should be switched off or put on ‘silent’ whilst in
the room. If you do need to use the phone, please leave the room before
3. No photography and especially sound recording without the
permission of those being photographed or recorded.
4. Please respect the fact that performing in public does not come
easy to most people and it is even harder if they are being distracted by
5. Only join in playing or singing if requested because we all don’t
sing or play using the same tune or words that you might.
6. As we have to pay to use the upstairs room in the Star, and we
do not charge for entry, all we ask is that you please buy a couple of
raffle tickets (for a bottle of wine and box of chocolates) in the interval. In
doing so you will help to keep the club running. Buying a drink or two will
also keep Ian & John, our excellent hosts, happy.
Due to the club being
held upstairs in the Star
there is regrettably no
disabled access available.
An early reminder
that the club will be
closed for one night
only on Friday the 1st
of July, as we do every
year, on the first
night of the
