About the event

We have been wanting to visit Minsteraces for quite some time so are very excited to have secured dates at last and do hope you can join us for another relaxing and rewarding holiday full of song and laughter with like-minded people in the beautiful Northumberland countryside. 

As always, Tim will lead you through an eclectic mix of music in his own fun and approachable style which both suits the style and period of the venue. The programme of music will be tailored to suit the participants on the holiday and encompass choral music in all its forms, from rounds and popular songs, through to more serious classical and sacred pieces. We allow time to explore the local area on our holidays and you won't have to go far because the grounds themselves are wonderful and extensive and plenty of hidden corners to discover. We also encourage our guests to entertain each other on 'party piece night' which doesn't have to be singing - it can be playing an instrument or reciting a poem etc and if we can participate in a local Sunday morning service we try to learn some music over the weekend to take along, but both of these activities are optional.

The venue is very easy to get to by car or train to Riding Mill where we can arrange to pick you up with advance notice.

£249.00 per person for new guests
