Welcome to The Goose Is Out!
If you don’t already know us, we run regular folk music concerts, club night, singarounds and instrumental sessions 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 just been named 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 Copper Family at The Ivy House! Friday 25 April! SOLD OUT
Last time we had the Coppers at the Goose, we had queues into the street, and many people didn’t get in.
We were hopeful that with the much larger room at The Ivy House this would not happen, however with a few days to go we have now sold out.
If you left it too late to get a ticket, we suggest that you subscribe to our newsletter to find out when tickets are on sale for all our concerts and to receive email updates of the ticket situation where necessary. You can do this via the link on the right of this page!
Beginners’ Tunes Session at The Old Nun’s Head – Monday 28 April!
Suntrap at The Old Nun’s Head – Friday 9 May!
Advance tickets are on sale for all our 2014 Goose concerts at The Ivy House, and you can either buy them online (see below) or at the Ivy House bar.
Headliners still to come are The Copper Family, Luke Jackson, Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin, Martin Simpson, Andy Cutting & Nancy Kerr, Steve Tilston, Alasdair Roberts and Kris Dollimore.
Sadly our extra concert in October which was to have been with the excellent Flamenco duo Marta and Richard Moir has been cancelled due to insufficient bookings for them in the UK – shame, UK promoters! We will be replacing it with a second FREE Shanty and Sea Song evening, following the great success of our first one! Watch this space!

Please Donate to Cancer Research in Memory of Karen Forester
Many of you will know Stuart Forester or have seen him at our gigs and Singarounds, most recently headlining at The Old Nun’s Head.
We were very sorry to learn that Karen, Stuart’s wife, died of cancer on Christmas Eve. She was only 51. We are sure that you will join us in sending Stuart our love and condolences.
Stuart has set up a page for anybody who would like to donate to Cancer Research in memory of Karen, which includes a very moving tribute to her. Please read the page and donate if you feel moved to do so.

Thank you so much to everybody who has read this and already donated.
Stop Press! Martin Simpson, Andy Cutting and Nancy Kerr!
We have just booked Martin Simpson, Andy Cutting and Nancy Kerr at The Ivy House for Friday 26 September next year. We know it’s a year away, but we expect this night to sell out, so if you don’t want to be disappointed (as so many of you were for our last concert), we advise you to buy your tickets soon.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
