Shepley Singers are a 40 strong group of amateur singers who come together under the direction of Bryony Griffith to perform 4-part a cappella folk songs. Formed in 2007 to perform at the first Shepley Spring Festival, the group decided to keep going and now have a Spring repertoire and a Winter repertoire of traditional songs arranged by Bryony.

The Sovereign Inn, Shepley, circa 1960. Notice the outbuildings to the right which included a boxing gym in the 1930s and the now-demolished old brewery to the left (where Seth Senior started brewing beer in 1829, a few years after the Turnpike road was built). Spookily, a creaky old chair was found walled up in a sealed room during demolition – a sure way to contain the owner’s spirit after death!
