Cobweb Orchestra Autumn Residential at Shepherd’s Dene @ Shepherd's Dene
Nov 30 @ 10:00 am – Dec 1 @ 4:00 pm

Hi Everyone,
I hope all of you have enjoyed your Summer break, Autumn seems to have come around very quickly.
As is the Cobweb custom, at the end of November we will be returning to Shepherds Dene for our annual Autumn Residential.
For those of you who have not been before, the weekend offers a mix of orchestra playing alongside fun Saturday evening entertainment, good food and general merriment amidst the setting of the stunning Arts and Crafts designed house with its beautiful gardens and countryside near to Riding Mill.
This residential only has room for a smallish orchestra so to avoid disappointment please book your place by the 4th of October, whether you wish to come for the whole weekend as a resident or just come for one or both days without staying. Consideration will have to be made so the orchestra can be balanced.
Best wishes,


For more information, to enrol and place a deposit, please download the form here – please note, cheques should be made payable to The Cobweb Orchestra.
