We are delighted to invite experienced singers to take part in our next singing holiday encompassing fun, fine food and exquisite music at the superbly appointed 19th Century Country House, Newfield Hall, which will be fully refurbished for the 2019 season.

In this truly grand setting and with magnificent views of the Yorkshire Dales, Tim Knight will lead you through some rare and wonderful choral music, both Secular and Sacred from the English Choral Tradition (all music will be provided in advance of the event and is included in the cost of the holiday). Tim Knight is a keen ambassador for choral music and tradition and has been running singing events, workshops and tours for over 15 years and has built up a reputation for providing singers with a rewarding, educational and memorable experience singing fine music in fine venues throughout the UK, America. This had led to consistent repeat bookings and excellent reviews from participants of his events (see below).

Friday - 4pm arrival, afternoon tea, introductory singing session, dinner
