Join us singing salty songs of the sea…and a few fishy tales, in St Mary’s lighthouse in Whitley Bay – learning the songs in the warm and comfy conference centre and then singing them in the stunning acoustic of this fabulous lighthouse. Starting with a meal and workshop in the lighthouse on Friday, on Saturday and Sunday we will walk out to the lighthouse – just before the tide comes in to cut us off for the day. Enlightening ballads about lighthouses., rousing songs about life at sea, soothing ballads and love songs to the ocean…as around us seals and sea gulls play in the waves.
All meals apart from Saturday night are included (we usually go to a famous Indian restaurant in Whitley Bay on Saturday night.) Accommodation also not included – but B&Bs are plentiful in Whitley Bay.
