Glossop Labour Club
Tuesday nights: Glossop Folk Club.
A singaround, with a wide variety
of folk-type songs, traditional or modern. Also instrumentals or other
poems, monologues, whatever you want to contribute. A good opportunity
to try out your songs (or whatever) in a friendly and informal group. Or
just come and listen –
no pressure to perform if you don’t want to. Starts about 8 pm. No
charge. Contact Robin
(01457 861606 email@example.com) for information.
Friday nights: Music session. Mostly instrumental (but
singers are not barred). Come and join in, whatever your instrument. Mainly
folk-type stuff (all acoustic), but anything goes – but be prepared for others
to try joining in on your contribution. Starts about 9 pm. No charge for admission.
A selection of 100 tunes (in 3 volumes) that are frequently played at the music
sessions at Glossop Labour Club can be downloaded from the Music page.
anyone who may be new to these, or indeed any, sessions, if you know any
these tunes we’ll be happy to join in. Of course you can suggest other
we play lots of others as well, and we’re happy to try to join in new
big advantage of suggesting a tune is that if you start it, we’ll play
your speed! Very informal and friendly, so an ideal occasion if you are a
beginner or are not used to performing together with others.
4th Sundays. Music session. Similar to the
Friday night sessions, (but generally more varied - songs, poetry, whatever). Starts about 8 pm. Contact Michelle Holding (firstname.lastname@example.org) for information.
Note that it is the 4th Sunday, not the last Sunday! The same thing in most months, but not always*. See the Special Events page for the date of the next session.
*To confuse the issue, the August session will be on Aug 29th (which is the 5th Sunday).
Themed Nights. In some months, we have an extra themed session on a Saturday. These usually have appropriate food,
and other relevant activities, and are very popular. No charge for
admission, but we ask for a contribution to the cost of the food. These
themed nights usually start at 8.00 rather than 8.30. See the Special Events page for information about these themed sessions, when they happen.
We are visited each month by the Glossop
Folk Train. This leaves Manchester Piccadilly at 18.59, with a group of
musicians playing on the train. When they get to Glossop, they come to the Club
for liquid refreshment and more music before returning to Manchester on the 21.48 train. The Folk Train is unlikely to re-start before Jan 2022.
See the Special Events page for information on the next Folk Train.

Some of these are currently running, either for real or via Zoom. Contact the organiser for details.
An informal walking group, usually 8-9 miles. Meet at the Club at 9.30
