Welcome to the Tykes’ Stirrings Web Site!

An amalgamation of Tykes News (West Yorkshire) and Stirrings (South Yorkshire)
Tykes Stirrings is a quarterly print magazine about folk music, song and dance. It covers Yorkshire and surrounds, and is read by people as far afield as the US and Australia; even by one or two in Lancashire! You can find out more about Tykes Strrrings and its history by entering Tykes Towers.

Note our new new address: tykesstirrings.org.uk. If you have a web site with a link to the old Tykes News or Stirrings address we'll be much obliged if you could update it.

Summer/ Autumn issue

Tykes Stirrings Summer/ Autumn Issue

No 6: Summer/Autumn 2021

Such changes are upon us still. Most of my TS friends and volunteers are twice punctured now - in a good way - and are looking forward to a relaxed Summer. In TykesStirrings No.6 terms that's the Summer and the Autumn - you were warned! The next issue (in six months!) will cover Winter 2021 & Spring 2022, then back to normal, The New Normal!

People starting their subscription with this issue will still receive four magazines, renewing after Autumn 2022. Nigel's Editorial rounds out with "[As] we approach the New Normal; start writing those songs about how good the Old One was. Have a great Summer and a glorious Autumn and whatever the next six months bring - stay safe."

Now pop over to the Current Issue page and see what we've managed to bring you in TykesStirrings Issue No. 6 - the fifth of our Lockdown Editions.
