Blaxhall YHA This weekend is not organised by me, but by a group from London who come to Blaxhall each January/February. Over the weekend there will be a total of four hours of singing led by me. But I'm sure there will be plenty of other informal singing!

Arrive on Friday afternoon/ evening to hang out together, chat, play games and sing. On Saturday morning go out for a country walk, visit Aldeburgh or go and spend lots of money at nearby Snape Maltings. There is an afternoon singing session on Saturday from 2.30pm to 5pm. After that, there will be a potluck supper with everyone. On Sunday morning there will be more singing from 10am to 12pm.

The weekend is open to anyone – no experience is necessary and Chris will teach all songs by ear. All songs will be in harmony with no musical accompaniment. Songs from Africa, Eastern Europe, gospel, etc.

You are most welcome to come with a non-singing partner (although we might be able to persuade them to join in!). Or just come for the walks and company and get away from it all.

The weekend is self-catering with typical youth hostel accommodation in bunk beds. People bring their own food. Please include something to share for a communal meal on Saturday evening. Other than the singing sessions, the weekend is unstructured.
