The Folk Hall

The Folk Hall is a thriving community hub in the village of New Earswick, York. Opened by Joseph Rowntree in 1907, the Folk Hall was given as a gift to the people of the village as “a place for meeting”. Under the care of JRHT the building has just undergone a major modernisation, creating a fully accessible and wonderfully light, bright space for everyone to enjoy.

There is a large village car park at the rear of the building, which is free of charge for any visitors and residents, and a number of public buses run services every 10 minutes from outside the Folk Hall into the centre of York or out to Haxby and Wigginton.

We host a range of events from smalls parties and groups, up to full weddings, festivals, Ceilidhs and more!
