Welcome to The Goose Is Out!

If you don’t already know us, we run regular folk music concerts, club nights and singarounds. We also support instrumental sessions  for beginners, all  in Nunhead, London SE15.

We are proud that our concerts are now held  at The Ivy House, which is London’s first community-owned pub (and has very deservedly won several awards  since it reopened, including  CAMRA South-East London pub of the year!)

We also  run stages at various local (to us!) community events during the year, mainly in East Dulwich, London SE22, which was where we first started out.

The Goose over the Summer




Goose beach

We don’t have concerts or club nights during July and August, when many people are at festivals or on holiday (enjoy!)

We do have our street party (see below!) with FREE music! All welcome!

Our Singarounds and the Beginners’ Sessions continue as usual and we will be back in September with Aimee Leonard & Emmie Ward followed by Brass Monkey!

FREE Goose music at Crystal Palace Road Street Party THIS SUNDAY 5 July!





The Goose is providing the live music again for our street party, which now alternates between Crystal Palace Road and Ulverscroft Road.

This year is the turn of Crystal Palace Road, and as well as booked bands, we are having an open mic hour as well!

Here’s the running order:

12pm DJ/Open Mic (see below)
1pm The Relatives (offshoot of The Dulwich Ukulele Club, R.I.P.)
2pm Ben Holland
3pm The Bara Bara Band
4pm John McClean and The Clan

Each  set after 1pm will be 45 minutes.

The open mic is first come first served and is open to anybody who would like to come and give us all a song or tune. Unlike the Singaround, you will be singing/playing into a mic.

The music can be  anything you want (as long as it’s suitable for a street party where there will be children and other sensitive souls :)  ).

However you might want to bear in mind that this is not a folk gig and most of the people there won’t be into hard core traditional unaccompanied singing, so please bear that in mind when  choosing what to sing. Also this is a jolly occasion, so let’s try to keep the music reasonably jolly as well  :)

There will be a whiteboard by the music gazebo, and singers will be in order of writing their names on the board.One song each to start with. As at the Singaround, a duo, trio or group counts as one spot, regardless of how many of you there are.

The booked bands will start at 1pm so if you want to do an open mic spot please make sure you get there in time to put your name down early.

The street party will be in the section of Crystal Palace Road between The Actress and The Great Exhibition, ie between the intersections with North Cross Road and Whateley Road, and the music gazebo will be towards The Actress (North Cross Road) end this year.


As well as the live music, there will be activities for children.

Please do come, all are welcome – and please bring food  to share!

Fingers crossed for continuing good weather!!
