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.

Farewell Brass Monkey …….
Well there are concerts and then there are truly memorable concerts – and what a great one we had on 25 September with the wonderful Brass Monkey.
We knew it was their final tour – what we hadn’t realised until they arrived was that it was their last ever gig together as a band. We’re sure it wasn’t just us who shed a few tears during the evening …..
Thanks Brass Monkey. We hope you’ll change your minds and come back some time!
And thanks also to Esbjorn Wettermark and Two Different Roads for your excellent support spots.
Robin Gillan Friday 9 October! John McClean and The Clan Friday 30 October !
Concert Tickets on Sale!
Well, 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.
Our final headliners of 2015 are Brass Monkey , John McClean & The Clan and Sur Les Docks.
Booked so far for 2016 are Wizz Jones, Kris Dollimore (ex Del Amitri), The Furrow Collective, Eliza Carthy & Martin Carthy, Saul Rose & James Delarre and John Spiers.

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.
