Unbelievable weekend!

What an absolutely fantastic weekend. 6 concerts, 7 workshops, sessions all over the place all weekend, beautiful sunshine, fabulous musicians...there's so much to report back on, and we will do in due course, but some rest and relaxation is definitely needed for a few days.

Programme Update - Tim Edey

Due to circumstances entirely beyond his control, we are sad to announce that Tim Edey is unable to be here today for the workshop or concert. We wish Tim's wife Isobel, and baby who is on the way, well and we will announce a rescheduled performance by Tim in due course.
