For 2022, our Singing Retreat in the Wye Valley will run from Friday 12th August to Sunday 14th August 2022. The earth will be warm and the season will be joyous, so come and sing, and bask in the glory of summer!
The Singing Retreat will be held at Oakraven Field Centre in Mitcheldean, next to the Wye Valley – an area of outstanding natural beauty. You can choose to stay in comfortable dormitory accommodation in shared rooms (shared with only one or two others) or camp with stunning views across the valley. Delicious home cooked meals will be provided from Friday evening to Sunday lunchtime. We can have camp fires under the stars at night.
You can arrive on Friday any time after 4pm and enjoy the idyllic surroundings. Dinner will be served at 7pm. Over the weekend, there will be a glorious mix of four part harmony singing, ranging from uplifting Gospel, Shape note, contemporary, Folk and World music. Early morning yoga will be on offer for those who fancy some bodywork and invigorating stretches on the Saturday morning. There will also be a whole camp ceremony on the Saturday. A Cabaret on Saturday evening will be an opportunity to perform/share your talents. On the Sunday morning, there will be a singing session in the morning followed by lunch and then the retreat finishes in the afternoon at 3pm.
Bring your musical instruments for jamming and singing sessions in the evenings. The Singing Retreat in the Wye Valley is a wonderful few days of singing, jamming, celebration and community in beautiful surroundings.
