Further information:

Places are still available to book on this informal and friendly singing break at Rydal Hall. A great opportunity to relax and unwind and sing in harmony with others in a beautiful location. All voices are welcome and no previous singing experience or ability to read music is required. Singing is led by Keely Hodgson, a Natural Voice Practitioner.

Rydal Hall is a Christian Conference Centre residing in 34 acres of stunning parkland in the heart of the English Lake District. The main house is a Grade II listed historic house with some parts dating back to the 1600s.

All are welcome to join the Heart & Soul Singing Retreats. This means that there will be a mix of people who have sung before and people who haven’t and every other singing experience in between. The singing sessions are informal, and Keely teaches each harmony part in a call and response way so that a song is built up in small and memorable portions. The peaceful and beautiful surroundings of Rydal Hall and gardens provide the perfect setting in which to take time out whilst discovering the joy of using your unique voice in harmony with others.

Keely Hodgson has been leading singing retreats at Parcevall Hall in the Yorkshire Dales since 2010.
