Spring Residential @ Sedbergh School
Apr 5 @ 12:00 pm – Apr 7 @ 5:00 pm

This will be our 13th  Sedbergh Residential Weekend and it is very popular this year! All the beds are now taken and 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. There may still be space for any players who’d like to come on a daily basis for any of the music or social sessions. Please let us know in advance if you wish to participate in music on any days so that there will be enough parts for everyone. The deadline for payment is Friday 15th March.

Please go to our news page for further information about the music. Please download the following:
