About this site


This is a word-based site, with pictures and the like used sparingly.  Art galleries are available to those who prefer that sort of thing.

 What’s New

 Alphabetical Index with links

Updates:  The site is updated when convenient, with the exceptions of Sid Kipper’s gigs (which are as accurate and up to date as possible) and the Trunch Trumpet (which is posted at the same time as it is put in the post).  It is an ambition, however, to have something new on the site monthly.              

Mail Order:  Orders are dispatched, by second class post, as soon as possible – often on the day of receipt.  The main exceptions to this are when an item is out of stock, in which case you will be informed immediately, or when Sid is on an extended tour (see ‘Gigs’).

Copyrights:  All material on the site is copyright, mostly to Chris Sugden.  The Mousehold Press and Leader Records have rights in certain items, however, and they are thanked for the permissions they have given regarding these.

Thanks:  Thanks to Calum Bulmer for setting up the site initially, and for his continued technical advice.  Also to Genevieve Tudor and Allan Price, Elaine Cooper and Domique Saintebarbe Ward for the use of their photographs.  The Sid Kipper logo was drawn by Graham Pirt.

The Kipper Family:  This site is dedicated to Sid Kipper and all his works.  There is a site dedicated to The Kipper Family, to be found at www.geocities.com/trunchtrumpet/.  We accept no responsibility for it, or its contents.  In passing we disapprove of its policy of posting copyright lyrics without permission or guarantee of accuracy (accurate lyrics for many of Sid’s songs can be found in his songbooks, or by application to the address below).  Nonetheless, we wish them luck.
