The evenings are getting longer and we're heading back outside!
Join us in our beautiful woodland location on The Nower as we sing in the summer!

Our beautiful woodland location is about a 5 minute walk from the nearby roads where there is ample parking, exact details of how to find us will be sent to you once you’ve booked. We are very excited to have been asked to sing at two local events on the weekend of the 17th - 18th June (early evening)  They are both local, relaxed and informal so it will be a lot of fun. If you are not able to come to these events you are still very welcome to join us for 6 weeks of beautiful seasonal folk songs, nature connection and good company!
