Workshops are a popular part of the festival with hundreds of people singing, dancing and playing together.

This year we have to scale down our Workshop programme but are pleased to still offer a few opportunities to learn new skills. These will hopefully include: Ukulele, Irish Session Tunes, Whistle, Flamenco guitar, Melodeon, intermediate Guitar, concertina or Mandolin, Appalachian clog, hula hooping and the ever popular African drumming. All workshops are weather permitting.

Workshops will be held, at the Arena, Early afternoons at the Bandstand and at our Campsite hub tent. Please check out our souvenir programme for more details.

 Workshops tickets can be booked online at our shop.
