Now I know it is only March, and we have just about got over Xmas 09, but don't really want to wait a few months before asking this question. Benslow are having a Christmas House Party starting on 24th December for four days. I just wondered if anyone had ever been to this in the past.
A friend of mine has been, so I asked what she thought of it. She would have been in her sixties at the time, enjoys singing and plays clarinet and bass clarinet. She's also been to clarinet courses at Benslow.
I can't remember how long ago it was; possibly 5 years or more. I enjoyed it a lot. The group was small and varied and the food and ambience (a roaring fire in the hall!) was good. Benslow has been up-grading its accommodation so its more comfy now and, if the weather is good, the garden is very good. Funnily, I can't remember a thing about the music we made! Much varied carolling, I think, and instrumental work for those who fancied it.
