Further information:

An opportunity to sing in harmony with others in a beautiful and inspiring location.

Rydal Hall is a Christian Conference Centre residing in 34 acres of stunning parkland in the heart of the English Lake District.


The Singing Workshop is open to all voices. No previous singing experience or ability to read music is required. Workshop Leader, Keely Hodgson will teach each harmony part in a call and response way so that a song is built up in small and memorable portions. As we listen to each harmony part, we build up a sense of the whole song and where we fit in.

Reducing the risk of Covid-19 transmission:
Chairs arranged with some space between each singer and everybody facing forwards.
Keely uses a C02 Monitor to ensure that the singing space is well-ventilated.
There will be windows open and, if more ventilation is required, there are fire doors which can be opened during the break times, or at any time if indicated by the CO2 monitor.
The Barn has storage heaters but please bring extra layers of clothing to keep warm if you find yourself sitting in a draught.
Keely’s current practice, as a choir leader, is to take a lateral flow test before singing with others. She will test before leaving home on Friday.
