Welcome to the Tykes’ Stirrings Web Site!
An amalgamation of Tykes News (West Yorkshire) and Stirrings (South Yorkshire)Tykes’ 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’ and its history by entering Tykes’ Towers.
Tykes´ Stirrings Winter Issue
Tykes' What?Winter brings new news to Tykes' News. With the ending of the Stirrings era in South Yorkshire, Tykes' News has been invited to pick up the slack, fill the void, complete the picture, join the dots – so instead of just taking over we thought we'd merge and become Tykes' Stirrings, preserve our identities and serve both counties equally. There is a more complete bulletin in the magazine.
