Further information:

Join a fabulous day on the Settle Carlisle railway, singing folk carols from Langwathby near Penrith, and on the train down to Ribblehead, where we will meet other choirs coming from Settle and beyond.
Then all the choirs singing together on the train to Settle, and a fabulous evening singing together in the Royal Oak pub and singing on the station.

Day starts with a workshop in Langwathby village hall learning (or revising) the harmonies for these folk carols.

Then off to sing in Langwathby station cafe, and on the train south to Ribblehead, picking up the Cowgill Folk Chorale at Dent Station en route.

At Ribblehead we will sing with the other choirs in the station at lunch time and in the Station Inn nearby – then all singing together on the train south to Settle where Janet Russell and Settle Voices are hosting a session for us in the Royal Oak. We will catch the 18:57 train north from Settle, arriving back at Langwathby just after 20:00.

Words, recordings and written music for the carols can be sent in advance for home study. Lift shares to Langwathby can be arranged, and some of our singers have offered a bed for the night if you are coming from afar.
