Farlington Guitar Workshop

A thriving informal Guitar group meeting in Farlington nr Havant/Portsmouth

  • Classical or fingerstyle Folk Guitar can be a solitary hobby... but not in South East Hampshire!
  • Established in 1988, we meet on alternate Thursday evenings to play for fun
  • Run in Farlington by experienced local teacher Derek Hasted
  • We have a vast music collection - 150+ ensemble pieces with easy and more challenging parts
  • We're novice and intermediate guitarists and we always welcome new players

Come along and see what we're about
