Dates and timetable

The course begins on the last Saturday in July, every year.

Our next course starts on Saturday 28th July 2018.

Here’s the provisional daily timetable (from 4pm on the Saturday):

8.30am Breakfast
9.30am – 12 Rehearsal
12.45pm Lunch
Afternoon FREE
6pm Dinner
7.45 – 9.45pm Rehearsal


  • there is no morning rehearsal on Wednesday, so the whole day is free.  Rydal Hall will provide a packed lunch if requested (if you’re staying full board).
  • there are extra string orchestra sessions (if you still have the energy!) after morning rehearsal and before lunch, on Tuesday and Thursday.

The course ends after breakfast on Saturday 4th August 2018.
