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.

If you’d like to receive our newsletter and be amongst the first to hear the latest Goose news and bookings, just subscribe via the link on the right!

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!




Goose beach

Our monthly Singarounds continue over the Summer (see below!) but we don’t have any ticketed gigs during July or August.

Normally our first one would be our club night on 8 September. Unfortunately this has had to be cancelled due to circumstances beyond both our and Jack Harris‘s control. We will be looking to book him in 2017 instead.

Our next gig will therefore be the concert at The Ivy House with the very  excellent Saul Rose & James Delarre headlining.

And then we have a very special one-off concert with Mike Cooper.

SINGAROUND! Sunday 14 August at The Ivy House!! 7pm !!!




Goose honking

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!

FREE entry, voluntary donation at the interval to help cover Goose expenses (we suggest £2 if you can afford it).

Hope to see you then!





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!


Ivy House bar
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  for more information.

Concert Tickets on Sale!




Concert at The Ivy HouseWell, we have lots of other things on apart from concerts, but our concerts are the only things we sell advance  tickets for.

You  can either buy tickets online (see below) or at  The Ivy House bar. However if we are close to selling out, we stop selling tickets at The Ivy House to prevent overselling.

Subscribers to our newsletter will receive updates on the ticket situation, which we will also post on our home page here if selling out looks likely. You can subscribe via the link on the right of this page!

Still to come in 2016 are   Saul Rose & James Delarre, John Spiers, Mike Cooper and Thomas McCarthy.

We are presently (as of July) confirming artists for 2017.

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.
