Singers North Bampton
13 July 2017 to 16 July 2017
Weekend for singers (self cater)
Bampton village is on the east side of the Lake District near Shap and Penrith in Cumbria. Despite being Easily Accessible from the M6 only a 15 minute drive from Junction 39 and a 20 minute taxi journey from Penrith Railway Station; Bampton is one of the quietest and most un spoilt of villages in the Lake District and is just three miles from Haweswater, a spectacular and beautiful lake which offers an ideal location for summer picnics, or first-class walking and orienteering at any time of the year. Haweswater is also one of the rare places where you can catch a glimpse of England's 'Only Golden Eagle', the friendly RSPB Rangers will help you identify it if required.
What you can expect:
Singers North at Bampton, Penrith - a relaxed and fun Folk Camps long weekend of music and dancing, but with a focus on singing, both in workshops and in sing-arounds/song swaps. It could look like this: Mornings will feature the option of an instrument workshop , or a small vocal group or 'Find Your Voice' singing workshop with Clare or Karen. We'll do whole-camp song workshops in the afternoons, and plan a pub session one afternoon and maybe a beautiful boat trip on one of the days (possibly with singing on the boat), and/or some time to explore the beautiful surroundings. In the evenings, some more singing and dancing, and, of course, the late-night singing - an unmissable feature of camp. We'll have a Sunday sing to wrap up before we all head off home.
