Weekend for singers (self cater) at Bampton, Cumbria
Thu 11 Jul 2019 to Sun 14 Jul 2019
Confirmed StaffLeader: Karen Dietz
Musician: Andy Johnson
Warden: Steve Porritt
What to expect?
If you wish the sing-arounds at Folk Camp start early evening (but are happy to sing into the wee hours!); if you love a good song swap, and if you like the idea of being in company with like-minded folk, this Folk Camp is for you.
We will gather to share and teach each other our favourite songs, sing together, sing solo and join in with some rousing choruses. All are welcome, from advanced to beginner singers and those who just enjoy a good listen. It’s not just singing! At no extra charge we will find time for other workshops, including music in the morning and a bit of dancing for good measure.
It will be a relaxed weekend of singing, dancing, eating, and going to the pub. Boat trip optional.
This self-catering camp starts Thursday evening, but if you can’t make it until Friday, then that’s OK too. At the end we’ll have a Sunday sing to wrap up before we all head off home.
Bampton village is on the east side of the Lake District near Shap and Penrith in Cumbria. Despite being Easily Accessible from the M6 only a 15 minute drive from Junction 39 and a 20 minute taxi journey from Penrith Railway Station; Bampton is one of the quietest and most un spoilt of villages in the Lake District and is just three miles from Haweswater, a spectacular and beautiful lake which offers an ideal location for summer picnics, or first-class walking and orienteering at any time of the year. Haweswater is also one of the rare places where you can catch a glimpse of England’s ‘Only Golden Eagle’, the friendly RSPB Rangers will help you identify it if required.
