I'm pleased to say that demand for copies of Jack Goodison's Collection of Local and Traditional Carols (AKA the Red Book) has encouraged us to commission another print run. Copies are now available at £10 each, including a contribution to Jack's nominated charities, and postal delivery can be arranged (UK by first class post costs £3.50). For more information, contact

Sheffield Carols that is!

Good for you Forgefolk

I believe Dungworth starts first Sunday after Remembrance Sunday or something

Is there a calender of dates for Carolling this year anywhere I have been asked already
