Adult Summer School
Our Folkworks Adult Summer School is a wonderful way to spend a week of your well earned summer break. The week is packed full of music, be it in your main instrument, ensemble, sessions, or ‘options’. The modular timetable of Adult Summer School allows you to alter the intensity of the week for your own needs but, taking everything in, there are over 42 hours of music making during the week!

The accommodation is in single rooms with both standard and en-suite available; there are also a small number of twin rooms. It’s a fantastic environment to learn a wealth of new repertoire, improve your technique and musicality, and make some fantastic friends in the process.

There is a tutor concert, a ceilidh, an ‘Over to You’ evening, a BBQ, and even a farewell party. We believe that our school is both excellent value for money and outstanding quality, we’d love you to join us and see for yourself.

“Best Folkworks Summer School ever last week in lovely Durham. Funny, stretching, ace experience, beautiful music, song and dance… inspiration to work like a demon at improving my playing over the next year.” Frank Smith -regular participant at Folkworks Adult Summer School
