North East Melodeon Weekend 2020
« on: February 05, 2020, 11:40:47 AM »

'North East Melodeon Weekend' is the new umbrella title for the two events: North East Melodeon Playgroup and Thinking Outside The Box VI.

I'm pleased to announce that North East Melodeon Playgroup is returning for a fourth year with tutors Mel Biggs (Beginners), Vicky Cooper (Absolute Beginners) and Richard Featherstone and Claire Abbott (Improvers) on Saturday with an additional workshop Mel's Thinking Outside The Box VI on Sunday.

Dates: 19-21st June 2020

Venue: Whittonstall Residential Centre & Campsite, Pasture House, Whittonstall, Northumbria, DH8 9JS

New For 2020
We have noticed the increase in interest for playing GC boxes - and some of us (Vicky & Mel!) are very excited about this! To encourage this, we are looking into the potential to run GC playgroup-style workshops alongside the usual DG workshops. They will run if we have enough interest so please specify your interest in GC workshops when you contact us!

We are pleased to be supported by Acorn Instruments again this year.

Full details and booking information in the document attached. People are already booking so come and join us!

I just have to recommend this weekend!
Although I'm a very poor student, I've found great enjoyment and encouragement there over the last three years. The venue is excellent, as is the fellowship. If I can possibly be, I'll be there. (I hope that doesn't put anyone off!)
Come and experience some Northern friendliness, you won't regret it.
Although I can carry on messing with melodeons, the ongoing attention of the Ministry of Truth and the Thought Police will (no doubt) eventually teach me to really love Big Brother!
