"I have never met anyone who has Chris's ability through humour and perseverance to teach so many varied and challenging songs in a weekend. His energy is tangible and is maintained throughout the weekend. The atmosphere when the harmonies come together is electric and what I call a 'golden moment'. This is why I keep booking!"

What is a residential weekend?
The cost of a residential weekend includes all meals, tea/coffee breaks, and singing tuition. Accommodation is in a mix of single, twin and double rooms. The singles tend to sell out very fast! All rooms are en-suite (except The Claret Centre, Buckden Towers which has shared bathrooms). All venues are fully accessible unless otherwise stated. However, many venues have a limited number of accessible rooms. Please contact Chris if you have any queries.
Weekends start before supper on Friday and end after lunch on Sunday. Singing sessions are in the morning, late afternoon and in the evening after supper. There is two- to three-hour break on Saturday afternoon to give people a chance to explore the local area.
