Regular Activities

We have a lot of regular activities and groups that take place at the Folk Hall weekly and monthly that our community can enjoy – some are courses, others are drop in sessions. New activities and groups are regularly starting up, so keep an eye on our website and social media pages for updates! There are also the noticeboards inside the Folk Hall as well as the bi-monthly New Earswick What’s On which you can pick up at reception.
