Singing Retreat in the Forest of Dean

11 Aug 2024—13 Aug 2024


Oakraven Centre, Mitcheldean, Gloucestershire

You are warmly invited to this singing retreat weekend, held at Oakraven Centre, set in the beautiful Forest of Dean next to the Wye Valley. This year the retreat runs from Sunday 11th to Tuesday 13th August.

We will be singing uplifting and heart opening four-part harmony songs such as folk, roots, world, gospel and shape note, as well as original compositions. All parts will be taught by ear. There will also be optional early morning yoga, as well as the opportunity to share your gifts at an informal cabaret session on Monday evening. At night, we can choose to  sit round a large fire under the stars, or stay indoors in the large lounge area full of comfortable sofas. Come and immerse yourself in joyful harmony singing, merry music making, fun and friendship at this singing retreat. There will also be opportunities to go for walks in the beautiful secluded grounds next to the centre or further afield.

Dormitory beds in comfortable shared rooms (mostly sharing with one or two others) or camping in lovely spacious grounds are available with full use of facilities. Campervans welcome. Day visitors also welcome. Delicious home cooked food is provided from Sunday evening to Tuesday lunchtime.

This retreat is now in its 14th year and gets booked up early. Please contact or phone 0790 9937880 if you’d like more information or would like to book.
