Into the New Year

We’ll all join hands and never fight again
We’ll sweep away the Old Year and bring the New Year in!

Many thanks to all who came to see the New Year in with Long Company. Cheering, booing, heckling, singing, dancing, playing – however you took part – thank you.
Now we’ll see what the rest of the year will bring.

About 170 people helped us to bring in the New Year at Greenhead College in Huddersfield and what a splendid night we had.

But welcoming the New Year is, for us, not yet finished. Over the first six days of January there are four opportunities to join us when the Long Company Mummers perform their play and the gathered revellers celebrate the new year with an evening of music and song and even a bit of step dancing.  Look at the events page for details and directions.

Merry Christmas etc.


“Oh the summer time is passed,
and the winter’s holding fast……..”

… to nearly quote a well known folk song.

We at Ryburn 3 Step wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Join us at one of our seasonal events and remember, there’s only one New Year resolution to have on your list – to spend the year enjoying lots of the music that this region of West Yorkshire has to offer. We do our best to introduce you to the best folk music around and all you have to do is check out what is offered by looking at our calendar of events. We hope to see you regularly in the New Year.
