Welcome to The Goose Is Out!
If you don’t already know us, we run regular folk music concerts, club nights and singarounds, all in Nunhead and Peckham, London SE15. We also support (but do not run ourselves) instrumental sessions for beginners.
We are proud that both our concerts and singarounds are now held at The Ivy House, which is London’s first community-owned pub (the Goose has community shares!)
We also run an outdoor stage at the annual Dulwich Festival Fair in May, on Goose Green in East Dulwich, London SE22, which was where we first started out, and are involved in various other community events.

Please note that some venues and timings are changing from March 2016 – all should be updated on our website but please let us know if you spot anything wrong!
The Goose Over the Summer – and beyond!
SINGAROUND! Sunday 14 August at The Ivy House!! 7pm !!!
Yes, it’s Singaround time again!
Forget your woes and come and join us at the lovely Ivy House, to sing or to listen.
We try to start promptly at 7pm, so please try to be there for then!
Please note that we are going to try holding the Singaround at the front of the main ballroom this time, as an experiment to see how it goes. We will welcome your feedback afterwards!

Hope to see you then!
IMPORTANT – CHANGES AT THE GOOSE
Our club nights and singarounds both have new venues, due to the impending conversion of “our” room upstairs at The Old Nun’s Head to a craft beer bar where no live music is allowed to sully (good word that!) the sacred imbibing of craft beer
Hopefully all our website information is now updated, but please contact us if you notice any errors!
The lovely Ivy House now hosts our Singarounds, in the Refectory (this is the room next to the ballroom where we hold our concerts). If you don’t know it, this community owned pub is a friendly, cosy place with a great range of ales!
The Singarounds will still be on the second Sunday of the month, and now start at 7pm.

The room will be open to people not specifically there for the Singarounds, so the vibe will be different, but we think there are all sorts of advantages to having a singaround which is actually happening in the community rather than confined to a separate room, and in fact that was how we started out at the CPT (The Crystal Palace Tavern in East Dulwich, which became The Great Exhibition and is now totally unsuited to a singaround!) .
We hope the fact that the singaround is in a bar may encourage other people in the pub to get up and give us a song!
As from March, our club nights are on a THURSDAY night at the lovely refurbished White Horse in Peckham, which has good food and real ales!

The sessions have moved to The Castle, 280 Crystal Palace Rd, London SE22 9JJ. Please contact Amanda Tuke on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Concert Tickets on Sale!
New Arrangements for Ticket Reallocation for Sold Out Concerts
Where a concert has sold out, we used to put people with tickets they couldn’t use in touch with people who wanted them, on the night of the concert.
This became too much of a hassle for us on top of everything else we had to do, so we reluctantly stopped doing it.
We are delighted to tell you that the lovely Ivy House people have offered to run two waiting lists – one for people who have spare tickets for a concert, and one for people who want to buy tickets (ONLY after all tickets have been sold out).
If you have spare tickets, The Ivy House will give you a refund IF they have somebody who wishes to buy those tickets at their full face value.
We have cleared this arrangement with WeGotTickets, on the understanding that it will only be available for sold out concerts.
Where a concert has not sold out, if you have tickets bought online which you cannot use you will still be able to reallocate them to somebody else via the WeGotTickets website.
