"Great singing club" The Wilson Family.

The Horse & Trumpet is a lovely CAMRA listed pub, located in Sileby, Leicestershire. It is traditional in style with lots of nooks and crannies and some great beers. The pub is one of a small, extremely well kept group of hostelries owned by the Steamin‘ Billy Brewing Co.. N.B. The Horse & Trumpet's car park is fairly small; check the map for alternative parking.

Singarounds and Guest Nights

Singarounds and guest nights start at 8.00pm (Doors open at 7:30). Singarounds are the very essence of what the club is about and are on the 2nd Monday of each month throughout the year (check the website for the January date if the 2nd Monday is Plough Monday). Normally there is no formal entry charge, but a voluntary contribution of just £1 to help us offset our running costs would be most welcome. Guest night charges vary.

Traditional Music Sessions

The music sessions are open to any musician who enjoys playing folk music. While the music tends to have a bias towards the tradition the format is reasonably free and the actual tunes played on any given night are collectively determined by those taking part. The sessions start at 8.00pm, there is no entrance fee and the pub keeps a good cellar with real ales always available. So what are you waiting for? Come and join us. Please note that the monthly English Music workshops that the club used to run ceased in September 2021.

Core Members

The Grand Union Folk Club has at its core a group of well established singers and musicians who are drawn together by a common passion - the love of a good session. Even allowing for the occasional absentee, there are enough of us to guarantee that, if you enjoy tradition style acoustic folk music, you will have a great evening out.
