Welcome to The Goose Is Out!
If you don’t already know us, we run regular folk music concerts, club nights, 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.

Seasonal Singaround! THIS SUNDAY 14 December!
No! This is not the lovely Nygel! Covering him with holly might be a bit painful ….. does quite resemble him though ….
Anyway … the annual Goose Seasonal Singaround is coming up, and as is now traditional (ish) we will be dividing the evening into roughly two halves.
The first half will be our usual Singaround format (but with a seasonal theme – PLEASE no songs of gloom and doom!) and the second half will be carols and other seasonal songs sung altogether when, our technical skills permitting, we will project the words onto a screen. Hooray!
Here is the list of carols and songs for the second half:
2014 Seasonal Singaround second half song titles
And here are the lyrics in case you don’t trust our technical skills (as if) and want to print them out and bring them with you (we used to print out copies, but they just got covered in ale during the course of the evening, can’t think how ) .
Seasonal Singaround 2014 song lyrics in order of singing
Here’s a clip of Coope Boyes and Simpson singing The Copper Family’s Christmas Song:
Here’s the version of While Shepherds Watched which we will be singing:
If anybody feels the urge to bring seasonal goodies such as mince pies to share, please feel free

Starts 7.30pm prompt – please be on time, particularly if you want to sing in the first half, as we want to leave plenty of time for the carols
Our Martin Carthy concert on Friday 30 January is now SOLD OUT!
Tickets for this concert have now sold out, sorry, with over six weeks still to go (as of 12 December) .
We have a number of other concerts in 2015 which we also expect to sell out in advance, including Brass Monkey‘s appearance on their last tour before they disband (Martin Carthy is a member of the band, of course!) so if you want to go we advise you to get your tickets well before the date of the concert.
Please click here for tickets for all other forthcoming concerts!

IF YOU HAVE SPARE TICKETS OR WANT A TICKET
Sorry again, but we no longer put people wanting tickets in touch with people who tell us they have spare tickets. It just became a big hassle for us on top of everything else we have to do, particularly on the night of the gig.
If you have spare tickets which you bought online, you can re-allocate them to somebody else via WeGotTickets. Please see their website for details of how to do this.
If you want tickets, you can try turning up on the night and asking around the front bar to see if anybody has spares, but we have to say that your chances are very very slim, though people have occasionally been lucky.
WE WILL NOT HAVE TICKETS ON THE DOOR SO PLEASE DON’T ASK, AND NOR DOES THE IVY HOUSE HAVE TICKETS FOR THIS CONCERT SO PLEASE DON’T ASK THEM! Sorry to shout
Again – if you were disappointed, please subscribe to our newsletter via the link on the right of this page (and then read it when it arrives!) so that you make sure not to miss “unmissable” gigs in the future!
Tickets now on sale for all 2015 concerts!
