We have players from 1 to 10+ years' experience.
You're assured of a warm welcome and your first visit is free - no obligation.
If you join, it's just £4.75 a session paid termly (£7 a session if you "Pay on the Day").
We meet in Farlington. Parking is free in a private car-park. Map and directions here
We play from 7:30 to 10pm on alternate Thursday evenings in term time - dates are on the leftbelow
At 8:30 there's free Fairtrade Tea & Coffee, or wine at cost. We appreciate help tidying up at the end!
Just bring your Guitar, a music stand and a footstool or rest if you use one
If you join, you buy The Workshop Collection - almost 200 ensembles, all beautifully typeset.
Our ensemble music has parts for those with a year's playing and other parts to challenge experienced players. You choose whether to play easy or hard lines! We have a warm, full sound that's easy to join in with. Download our free trio and see.
We play as a complete group; there's no shame in playing a wrong note!
We put on 2 little Concerts a year.
Workshop sharpens your sightreading, rhythm and listening; that will improve your solo playing too.
Our success is because players support us so wholeheartedly - we have "long service" presentations to say Thank You!
Please contact Derek so we can expect you
It's totally informal - come and enjoy the relaxed company - ensemble guitar is a lot of fun
