Welcome to The Goose Is Out!

We are Nyge and Sue, and we  run regular folk music concerts, club nights and singarounds, all  in Nunhead, London SE15.

We are proud that all these nights are  now held  at The Ivy House, which is London’s first community-owned pub (the Goose has community shares!)

We are also  involved in various other community events, and for the last few years have run the music stage at the Dulwich Festival Fair on Goose Green in SE22, right opposite the pub where we first started out!

Coming Up at the Goose!

Door

Tickets

Well, we have had an amazing February so far! A  fantastic club night with Kit Hawes and Aaron Catlow  which was definitely one of the  highlights of the ten years we have been running the Goose (they are going to be BIG!) and the most people at a Singaround we have ever had, even including our December seasonal singarounds (68!!! including us!)

 

Wizz Jones

And to finish off a brilliant month, we are thrilled to be welcoming  Wizz Jones back to the Goose on Friday 23 February. Two great supports tonight, too – Andy Twyman and Lisa Winship & Andy Mathewson

Goose honking

Our next singaround is on Sunday 11 March. Oh dear, that goose looks bigger than Wizz, what happened? Great website editors of our time, not.

Our next Club Night is on Thursday 8 March when we are delighted to have back Hadrian’s Union as headliners in their own right. Another band to watch! They have just changed their line-up and have an amazing new fiddler. We will put up a picture soon!

Some Important Goosey Things To Note!

Tickets

 

VENUE

All our nights are  held at The Ivy House.

TIMES

  For all our nights, the door  opens at 7pm. For concerts and  club nights, the live music starts at 8pm. Singaround singing starts  at 7.15pm.

TICKETS

Online concert tickets for Friday  concerts are available from WeGotTickets.

Tickets are also available  from The Ivy House bar, but please be aware that to avoid overselling (and exceeding the venue’s legal capacity) we take tickets off sale at the bar when a concert is near to selling out.

We do not sell advance tickets for our Thursday club nights and Sunday singarounds.

For more information about tickets, please click here.

Please contact us if you have a query which is not answered in the link above.

DOOR

Please note that during our concerts and club nights, you will not be able to access the ballroom (where our nights are held) from the refectory, EVEN IF YOU HAVE BOUGHT AN ADVANCE TICKET . If you are already in the refectory, please use the garden door and go round the side of the pub to access the ballroom and the ticket/handstamp  table from the front bar.

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused, but unfortunately we have had problems in the past with people using this door to avoid payment, and we can no longer have somebody there  every night checking handstamps.

FOOD

We experimented for a while with allowing people to eat in the ballroom prior to the live music starting, but for various reasons this did not work, so we no longer allow food in the ballroom  AT ANY TIME  after the door opens at 7pm.

If you want to eat the Ivy House’s yummy food, please try to arrive in time to eat in one of the other rooms. You are welcome to save a seat in the ballroom once the door opens at 7pm and eat elsewhere, and you can also phone The Ivy House in advance to reserve a table to eat in  one of the other rooms.

You may have to wait a while for your food at busy times, so please allow plenty of time to ensure you catch all the live music!

Please note that the Ivy House stops taking orders for food at 6pm on Sundays.

SEATS

Our concerts and club nights are often very crowded. We never exceed the room’s legal capacity, but in order to allow as many people as possible to enjoy the music, we do keep space at the back for standing room only.

Therefore, please do not bring additional seats into the ballroom, as you will be asked to take them out again.

If you must have a seat for health reasons, please either come when the door opens at 7pm to be sure of a seat, or if this is not possible, please contact us before the night so that we can make appropriate arrangements for you.

We hope you understand!

SINGAROUND

We now charge £2 entry to the Singaround, for both singers and listeners. We hope that this is sufficiently low that nobody will be deterred from coming due to the cost.

To soften the blow, we include in the price a  raffle ticket. In the interval we will draw two tickets for the lucky winners to have a dip in our famous (or infamous) Goose raffle bags …..

The Singaround finishes no later than 10.30pm, when the bar closes, to give us and the bar staff time to clear up before The Ivy House closes at 11pm (as it is a Sunday).

ENJOY YOUR EVENING!

The Goose does not run sessions but if you are looking for one locally, South London Tunes Collective meets on the last Monday of the month for a friendly and informal session at The Castle pub, 280 Crystal Place Road, East Dulwich, SE22 9JJ.  All acoustic melody instrument players are welcome.

Each session  a new folk tune is learned by ear, phrase by phrase, and  tunes learned  in previous sessions are revisited.  More details can be found at https://www.facebook.com/groups/SouthLondonTunes/
