2014 Gathering was on Sunday 4th May. Come and join us in 2015!

The next Blackstone Edge Gathering is likely to be on Sunday 3rd May 2015

Join other singers on Bank Holiday Sunday to commemorate the gathering of thousands of Chartists on Blackstone Edge in August 1846.

Walk up to the rocky outcrop on Blackstone Edge in the early afternoon, to picnic, to enjoy the walk and the views, to sing, and to meet and listen to other singers. All as a memorial to the great Chartist gathering there, almost 170 years ago.

All are welcome.

There will be choirs, individuals and small groups singing Chartist and other songs; possibly some people reading poems or talking about the Chartists; and lots of picnickers. You can join in the singing or just listen. If you have a flag or banner for your choir/group, please bring it with you.

If you would like to contribute a song or reading, or if you are willing to lead a walk up to Blackstone Edge from one of the valley towns or railway stations, please contact
