À cappella, great songs, comedy & perpendicularity with Michael Carlyon, Adrian Mealing, Philip Read, Chris Samuel, James Sills & Dom Stichbury

A Fistful of Spookies (UK) were abandoned to their own appliances when festival hits The Spooky Men’s Chorale retreated to Australia after their sold-out 2015 tour. This rambling, rambunctious collection of UK Spooks keep alive the flame of Spookiness in Britain. Magnificent fun! A cappella but not as we know it.

‘A fun-sized version of The Spooky Men’s Chorale’ – Mark Radcliffe, 6 Music
‘Spectacular singing!’ – Mark Radcliffe, R2 The Folk Show
‘One of the funniest bands ever – still chuckling’ – Mike Harding

‘Heartbreaking. Hilarious’ – The Old Church, Stoke Newington
‘Wonderful … I laughed the whole time’ – Sam Lee, The Nest Collective
‘Hert-hugging harmoniesa’ – Welshampton Parish Hall
‘A wonderful evening of music and mirth’ – Bolton Socialist Club
‘Such a tonic to the soul and the senses!’ – Victoria Hall, Settle

‘Sublime voices, much humour, and wonderful interaction with the audience. It really was a zinging evening, as predicted. To top it all off, a really nice bunch of people too.’ – Annie Carter, Chapel Arts, Chapel-en-le-Frith
‘Seriously good entertainment’ – co-promoter Fred, Chapel Arts
‘Chapel Arts proud to have hosted a wonderful evening with this outstanding group last night. Packed audience just loved them’
‘What a marvellous evening of Spooky gloriousness at Countesthorpe. Pure joy to hear such wonderful singing and witness such manliness. “Crossing the Bar” had its usual effect on me and loved dancing to the end (of love). If these magnificent men are anywhere within striking distance of you then I urge you to go and see them. Life affirming!’ – Gina, Countesthorpe
‘The best gig I’ve been to in 20 years. And I’ve been to a few. Hilarious!’ – John, D&J Festival Catering, Countesthorpe

Sedbergh Artisan Market

Our sixth season of markets continues with the June edition. The market has grown over the past twelve months and now runs along all of Main Street from St. Andrew’s church gate to the Information and Book Centre. You will find the best crafts, made by the stall holders themselves and delicious food locally produced by the traders. New for this year, there will be hot food. We are working to make the market more of a family occasion with competitions, street magic and games for kids, run by Settlebeck School, in St. Andrew’s church yard. The town’s shops and cafes will be open as usual as a perfect complement to the stalls.
