Folk Train: Codswallop

A new band to the folk train playing a mixture of acoustic material from traditional Tunes, Blue Grass, and some humorous songs with the 4 vocals forming a nice blend. They consist of acoustic bass/guitar/percussion and alternating mandolin and banjo. Adi, Iain, Terry and Jayne have the ability to talk a load of old Codswallop, hence the name!

All profits to We Shall Overcome.

Poetry music and rock n roll mayhem with the world's wrinkliest Boy Band, Bard Company.

Sunday 11 November

The Red Shed Players

They Walked on Water

2 pm (doors open 1.30 pm)

£4 on the door, £3 advance; £2 low income


The Red Shed Players return to Glossop with their highly acclaimed play about the 1968 Rugby League Challenge Cup Final and one man's search for the truth.
1968 was a year mass revolt swept the world, but for David Hinchliffe 1968 meant his first pilgrimage to Wembley. Little did he suspect that this game would change his life and the very future of the club he loves so deeply

"For 25 years the Red Shed Players have entertained the masses with a quirky blend of agit-prop, biting satire, surreal imagery, video, music, existentialist philosophy, Brechtian direction, Marxist-Leninist politics, and a few carefully hidden jokes."

Proceeds to Stand Up To Racism.
