Dave Swarbrick will be giving a 60 minute masterclass on Friday.
I've attached our booking form for the weekend and we'd really appreciate if you could get them to us ASAP with a deposit. We are offering an installment scheme with standing orders or BACs transaction. So get your reservations in please!
There will be NO CAMPING this year. It was felt by the centre that this wasn't a controlable commodity. However, there is a campsite within a mile's walk from the centre. Glebe Farm campsite, Bosherston.
