Devonport Folk Music Club meets every Monday, and some other nights, at the historic command post, "The Bunker" on Mt Victoria, Devonport, Auckland, New Zealand.
The best local and visiting overseas singers and musicians are hosted at our Club Nights and Concert Nights making it a good inexpensive night out in the company of friends.
Please take note of door charges as they may vary for concerts, and please bring cash only.
This programme is subject to change. It is always a good idea to ring first if there is something special you want to see - it is essential to book early for concerts, as space is limited.
Please note that although access to vehicles on Takarunga/Mt Victoria has been restricted, this does not apply to our members and visitors to the Bunker.
