What's it all about?
Before taking the procedure for the Newsletter, below, or if asking the
reason for losing receipt of it, please note that I regret the
circumstances caused by the catastrophe affecting the operation of my
computer. Although its action was subsequently restored, I regret that
several programs no longer operate and each one of those has caused the
loss of some very important contact and diary information for arranging the
Folk Train programme and of the system for spreading the Newsletter to
those who have applied for it.
As previously stated, I'm asked the initial question of
this item quite frequently so I thought that a brief description of what
goes on, on the night, would not go amiss.
On the fourth Tuesday of each month we no longer gather on
platform 2C. It has been 5A at times but please check the departure boards
in Sheffield Station foyer to view the 19:14 train to Manchester which
calls at Dore (19:20) and all stations along the Hope Valley. There is
music from the band throughout the journey. We reach Edale at 19:47, where
we alight and make our way to The Rambler, the pub next to the station,
where the musical entertainment continues.
We take the 21:29 train back to Sheffield
- with more music - arriving at 22:04.
information see the FAQ.
Over recent years the coach occupied by the band has been so crowded that a
number of people have had to ride in the second coach. Kris Hudson-Lee, a
member of the band Ethryll, has offered to assist us by extra folk
music being made available to entertain those in the second coach. This can
happen on some occasions. See their web site at www.ethryll.co.uk .
