Your questions answered...

We've been running for 30 years!

If you play classical or fingerstyle 6-string folk guitar from music notation (not tab), come along...

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!

What do I do next?

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
