Please go to the Event List page to see all our events.

Due to the current restrictions imposed by the government, we have put all events on hold until further notice.

We are in talks with the various retreat venues regarding the way forward. If you have booked on an event then I will be in touch once I have further information.

We hope you all remain safe and healthy and hope to see you later in the year.



Othona Chapel2We have picked stunning locations to host our weekend retreats. Would you like to spend the weekend socialising and singing with like-minded friends, eating wholesome food, relaxing by the sea or lounging in a 17 century mansion house overlooking the river Dart?

Sharpham Staircase4If this sounds like your ideal weekend then these Summer and Winter retreats are for you.

Choose between Othona (near Bridport and 15 minutes walk to the sea) or Sharpham House (near Totnes on the river Dart).

The price is all inclusive of accommodation, meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and workshops. There is no supplement for single rooms unless you upgrade to a larger room. If you need a single then please book these early as they tend to go very quickly.

What type of songs will we learn? Well anything with good harmonies and rhythms, this includes World Music, Gospel, Taize, Pop, Barbershop, African and shorties.

Referral Scheme discount

If you introduce someone new (who has not been on one of our retreats before) to the same retreat you are booked on, you will receive a £10 discount per person that you introduce, up to maximum discount of £40. The new person will also get a £10 discount.

You must have been on at least one of our weekend retreats to qualify for a referral discount. You must also let me know who you are referring at the time of their booking.

Put your thinking caps on, do you know someone who would like to come and join us for the weekend?

Single Rooms

As single rooms tend to be a little smaller we are no longer charging a supplement for them. However, if space permits, you can upgrade to a larger room (a twin or a double) for £40.

If you would like a single then let me know if you want a standard room or an upgrade.
