The evening at the Sun Hotel will see Hattie Briggs as the headline performer, with the former Oxford University student coming off the back of touring with legendary tenor Alfie Boe, who she caught the attention of whilst busking in London.

Appearances on the BBC Breakfast show a few weeks ago followed, while two of her EPs have reached the iTunes top five.

Opening the evening will be Zoe Wren, who is signed to Walkern-based label Folkstock Records. She is set to releasing a cover EP titled Inspired and has previously been featured on Radio Two.

Doors open at 7.30pm and music starts at 8.15pm. Tickets cost £12 for members and £14 for non-members. To find out more visit www.hitchinfolkclub.idnet.net/programme.
