Blackmore, Essex

This year we are delighted to offer two opportunities to Sing the Season! We return to this beautiful and ancient church in Blackmore to sing more of your favourite carols and other seasonal songs in a beautiful, atmospheric setting – with some festive refreshment to round off the day.

Frances Quintrell and Christine Gwynn will help you to get the most from your voice with tips and encouragement, whilst relaxing into the seasonal spirit.

Anyone who enjoys singing is welcome, from beginners to experienced choristers; we shall include lots of well-loved and familiar carols as well as a few surprises, with opportunities for some part-singing if you wish.

Enrolment in advance essential.

FEEDBACK from previous year's workshop

logoBeautifully decorated warm church; good to sing festive songs and carols.
logoA stupendous day. Fantastic variety of music and plenty of time to explore it.
logoTop marks for venue, food and drink, company, music, musical directors, overall enjoyment, a superb day - the perfect antidote to the stress of the pre-Christmas period. I can't remember when I last enjoyed myself so much.
