Sedbergh Residential

Our Spring residential weekend at Sedbergh is proving very popular this year. All the beds are taken, but there’s still plenty of space for any players who’d like to come on a daily basis for any of the music or social sessions. No additional meals can now be booked as the dining room is full. In previous years, some people have found B&B accommodation locally so that they can be fully involved in the event without sharing in the delights of the student rooms at Sedbergh School.

That’s all for this week, there are some exciting projects in the pipeline, but for now – do get enrolling for what looks to be a fantastic concert on 24th March with Fenella!
