Fourum began the New Year by selling the last copy  of their CD Set The Dales Collection. However a new run arrived before the end of February

Our first appearance of the year will be at a Folk Concert at St. Wilfrid’s Community Centre, Ripon  on Friday 23rd February - a new venue for the group! It starts at 8pm and Admission is £5

A beautiful Sunday after some awful weather so Fourum made a trip to the Ice Cream Parlour in Reeth and entertained a large crowd on the green outside. We met many new fans from all over the country. A wonderful afternoon!

Another wonderfult afternoon to remember at the Swaledale Festival in Arkengarthdale. A number of the audience were new to our music and the reception we got at the end of our set showed how much we were appreciated. We were even allowed to overrun by fifteen minutes so they could hear more!

It was a bit of a mad dash to Manfield after that for an evening concert in All Saints Church, where we performed for another two hours to another appreciative audience. A great day!

Had a really enjoyable night singing in the bar at the Tan Hill Inn after a really tasy meal. Thanks to former owner Louise for arranging it and to new owner Andrew for welcoming us back to the highest pub in England. Worth keeping an eye on what's planned! Allen sang his song inspired by his visits to Tan Hill over the years which was warmly received by those in the bar. A world premiere, he stressed. Look out for the next airing! Great audience and especially nice to meet the Dales in the Dales, a couple from Nottinghamshire and love retreating to Tan Hill when they can and the Gunnerside Gill walkers, one from Sunderland, who was very tolerant of our singing Blaydon Races!! Thanks to all and hope to see you again soon. Georgian Theatre annual concert on 6th October is next big one. Tickets out soon.

Another amazing evening at the Georgian Theatre Royal. The audience were wonderful and we all had a great night. Special thanks to our guests Roger Jones on Drums and Jim Hartwell from San Antonio, Texas on vocals and guitar. Your contribution was much appreciated by both us and the audience!

Fourum were back at Hummersknott Academy last night, where the group was originally founded in 1972. It was lovely to see so many ex-pupils from those early days, and members of staff as well. The evening was organised by ex-staff member, Philip Boyle, who is still running the school badminton team and was raising funds for a forthcoming international tour. A great deal of money was raised during the evening - more than at any previous single function!
