Specific course timings
Children should arrive on Monday 31st July 2017 between 8.45 and 9.15am, and the course will finish with an end of course concert in the stunning Yehudi Menuhin Hall on Friday 4th August at 2.30pm, after which the children will be ready to leave.

After the first day, children attending on a day basis should arrive by 9.25am (no earlier than 9.15 please), ready for the first session at 9.30am.  They should be picked up at 6pm each day.

£540 residential, £395 day for all Summer Course bookings made before 25 April 2017. For bookings after this date, the cost is £580 residential and £425 day.  

The cost of the courses is all inclusive – all classes and tuition, accommodation, meals and activities.

If any day children wish to join in the evening activities, this option is available until 9pm and will be chargeable at £7 per hour.

Availability of Places
Please note that residential places on our courses for the last couple of years have been completely sold out several months in advance, and our last course was sold out for day places too.   

It is very sad for us to have to turn people away, and we are moving from two courses to three for 2017, which hopefully will help ease the pressure for places.  But we strongly suggest booking early to guarantee a place - this really is a fact, not a hard sell!
