Listen to Mark’s new podcast on Soundcloud…
Our Masterclasses, which have proved so popular, are now monthly and with a smaller number of guests. They will run on the first Wednesday of the month.
Sign up for our masterclass notifications on the right of this page...
The Masterclasses are priced at £65.00 p.p. and begin at 10:30 but please arrive at 10:15 to enjoy a cup of coffee and a home-made biscuit in advance! Prior to this time we are preparing for the day, cleaning and hoovering! The session lasts 1½ hours and is followed by a 3 course lunch which is served with a glass of wine. Other beverages are available but not included in the price!

Due to cancellations we have had to take the decision that places must be paid for at the time of booking. Refunds will only be given if we can re-sell the place. Your booked place is fully transferable to another person if you cannot make it yourself. We hope that you understand our position on this but with a small group losing students at the last moment does impact on us.
Each Masterclass will run provided we have a minimum of 8 students!. Please call us on 01398 341231 Tuesday - Saturday 12-2 p.m. or 6-10 p.m. to book your Masterclass where payment can be made over the phone.
We occasionally send out emails with information about special nights and our masterclasses etc. If you would like to receive these emails please sign up below...
Your information is safe we will not pass on your details to anyone.
