We will sing each day in the beautiful cool setting of Maison Anglaise and then you can enjoy a range of cultural visits and activities supported by excellent local guides exploring the culture, landscape, wildlife and history of the area. Options to trek or laze in the sun!
Bruce has led singing workshops and community choirs for almost 20 years and is well known on both the choirs festival and camp scene. He likes to arrange and teach many styles of simple harmony songs which are “immensely satisfying to sing”. Bruce is known for his wonderfully inclusive and relaxed style, and his talent for enabling people to sing with wild abandon. Bruce has previously spent 6 weeks in Morocco with his family and can’t wait to return!"

THE MELLSTOCK BAND
Dancing, Carolling and Carousing in English Tradition
THE MELLSTOCK BAND invite you to join them in an uproarious celebration of dance, drink and general misbehaviour as carried on at Christmas in many villages until about a hundred years ago - along with sobering admonitions from puritans, parsons and angels. Alongside the revelry are convivial harmony songs, rousing dance music, Thomas Hardy’s poetry set to local tunes, carols dedicated to bell-ringing and cider, glees from the singing-masters, and the Devil’s own tunes.
