additions & corrections

the 'Sheffield' carols

Since going to press with Pat Malham's list of events, details of further sings have been finalised. See the SRFAN website for the current state of play: Sheffield Carols 2007

Folk at the Holly Bush

Pete Shaw tells us that this event has now moved from Wednesday to Thursday evenings at the Princess Royal:

Skipton Folk Club

As of 21 January 2008, the Skipton club moves from its old venue at the Royal Oak to

The Narrow Boat, 38 Victoria Street, Skipton BD23 1JE

Club nights will now be on Mondays instead of Tuesdays. This is due to the Royal Oak suddenly closing down without warning.
