What's it all about?

I'm asked this question 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.

For more information see the FAQ.

Crowded coach
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 .
