Summer Hall week (self-cater) at Miserden
Sun 16 Jun 2019 to Thu 20 Jun 2019
Confirmed StaffWarden: Steve Porritt
What to expect?
Would you like to camp in the heart of Miserden village in the stunningly beautiful Gloucestershire countryside but not have to get up for a music workshop in the morning?
With no official workshops, no meal times and no problems this camp is the ideal time for de-stressing, lazing around and not doing much. Should there be fellow musicians on site, then you could play a bit of music or sing a few songs, but only if you really want to.
There’s just the wonderful Miserden countryside to ramble in and the Carpenters Arms to visit with no pressure to do anything but listen to the calls of wild birds and the chiming of the church clock.
Previous activities on this camp have included music sessions in the hall and in the pub, extensive walking and cycling trips for those so inclined, joining Gloucester Morris Men to dance followed by a music and song session in the pub and another evening spent listening to a folk band in the local pub.
Our warden will be onsite to ensure that everything at the hall is working as it should, but the rest is up to you. The village shop is just a few yards from the campsite and you have all the facilities of the hall kitchen and toilets. What’s not to like?
This camp is available to anyone for any amount of time, from a single night up to the whole four days. It will suit people booking either the Session Weekend before or Singers Weekend after
(Or both of course!). If you’re attending Session camp why not stay an extra day or two? Likewise why not arrive a few days early for Singers camp?
This camp is also available to anyone not attending either Session or Singers camps.
Miserden is a small village surrounded by beautiful Cotswold countryside. Gloucester, Cheltenham and Stroud are all nearby but the village is so attractive you may want to just sit in the field and admire the view. The village pub is very welcoming and people often enjoy a session combined with a pub lunch. Miserden is set in beautiful wooded hills and valleys between Stroud and Cheltenham, Miserden is in a walker’s paradise. Historic Cheltenham is just 9 miles away and Cirencester and the Cotswold Water Parks are well worth a visit. Ask the locals the history of Whiteway. Miserden village is part of the well known Wills Estate.
