We have three different kinds of regular Goose evenings, plus occasional one-off events.
All our regular evenings are now held at The Ivy House.
We also support (but do not run) regular beginners’ sessions. Information about these can be found at the bottom of our Home page.
Our concerts have a relatively well known headliner plus two pre-booked support acts. These are monthly (apart from July, August and December), and are usually on the last Friday of the month.
Folk Club Nights
Our club nights have a usually less well known headliner, plus floorspots. We also have the traditional folk club raffle …..
The club nights are also monthly (apart from July, August and December), and usually (with rare exceptions) on the second Friday of the month.
We have monthly Singarounds, now held in the Ivy House ballroom, where anybody can come and sing a song, join in the choruses or just listen.
These are held all year round, including the months when we don’t hold ticketed gigs. They are on the second Sunday of the month. This means that sometimes they are on the same weekend as the club night, and sometimes on the weekend before, depending on what day is the first day of the month. Confused? So were we the first time they were on different weekends!
Are you coming by yourself?
We know that many people would like to come to Goose events but don’t like going to things by themselves.
If your friends aren’t into the same music as you, please don’t let that put you off coming. Ask for Sue at the door (or contact us beforehand) and we will do our best to introduce you to other people who have also come by themselves, or at least some other friendly faces! Hopefully you will end up knowing lots of people with the same folkie interests as you!
But please if you are by yourself, try to come when the door opens, as once the room is full it becomes harder to find you a free seat with friendly people nearby (we’re sure you are all friendly, but hey we don’t know you all yet!)
Would you like to help?
As you can imagine, running the Goose is very time-consuming. We already have some brilliant helpers, but anybody who could spare some time to put round flyers and posters or help on the door or indeed with any other aspect of the Goose would be welcomed with open arms!
Please contact us if you think you could help!
