SongTribe trip to Wiston Lodge

Thursday 25th – Monday 29th July 2019

This is a residential break for the choir, with Ali leading some singing workshops. Undoubtedly it will also include other shenanegans!

We’ll be staying in the lodge, camping in the grounds, or sleeping in cabins within the grounds of the lodge. For anyone who would prefer to organise their own accommodation nearby, there will be an option to pay a day rate, and enjoy all of the daytime activities/meals. Wiston lodge has a catering team, so for this trip we won’t need to do any cooking.

More info coming soon!
