We use a wide variety of venues to accommodate the many different courses throughout the country. Each venue has its own pricing as they are all unique. Please check with us if you're interested in a course. The 2019 prices are under review. Here are some indicative prices for residential places on our standard weekend format (Friday to Sunday); non-residential and sharing partners are also very welcome. We also offer weekday courses, day-only events such as Jam sessions, extended weekend courses (e.g. Sunday to Monday). Check with us for details.



(Cumbria, North Yorkshire)


Residential: £450 (includes dinners)




(Swindon, Berkshire, Somerset)


Maintenance or Beginners

There are a couple of formats for the Maintenance and Beginners courses and prices might therefore vary - check with us at the time of booking/enquiring. Maintenance is usually 1pm on the Saturday to 5pm on the Sunday. Beginners is usually the standard 5pm on the Friday to 1pm on the Sunday but can sometime be 3pm Sunday to 5pm Monday.

Residential £325 to £425 (please check when you enquire)


Playing courses

Residential for Swindon/Wiltshire is £430 (excludes dinners)

Residential for Reading/Berkshire is £450 (includes dinners)


All prices include: tuition, student notes, refreshments, B&B and lunch.


As ever, players' partners or spouses are very welcome and a price can be provided at the time of booking. This price would include B&B and dinners only.


A 50% deposit and a completed Booking Form are required to secure a Booking. The Deposit is non-refundable unless we can secure a replacement for anyone who cancels within 6 weeks of the course.



Always contact us to check availability of places on our courses.

We can assist with extras such as: room sharing, room upgrades, extra meals, taxis, etc.).

We sometimes get late cancellations for students who have had to change their arrangements and can’t come – keep an eye on this web site and the Newsletter for any special deals. 


Introduce a NEW person – bring along someone onto a course who hasn’t been on one of our Guitar Weekends before and get £30 off, for each person, on your next year's course (up to a maximum of 5 new introductees per year)

For additional nights, extra meals, taxis, room upgrades, room sharing, etc. please contact us with your requirements. Use the deposits shown above for booking – the price for extras can be reconciled with the Balance.


We reserve the right to change the content and date of the courses depending on circumstances which might affect the learning or enjoyment of students.

A Reservation on a course can be made by phone or email but this doesn’t constitute a Booking. A Booking requires the deposit as outlined in the above table and a completed Booking Form. The Balance would be due one month before the start of the course.

Unexpected things happen in our lives which cause changes to the best laid plans and, since the deposit is both non-refundable and non-transferable, we recommend that you take out cancellation insurance (check out your holiday insurance).
