Previous attendees comments

A great mix of activities, people, music and just the right number of participants

Educational, exhilarating, challenging, inspiring, exhausting, exciting and terrifying in equal measure. I’ve never had a more enjoyable week!

A well organised week with excellent focus on playing in a small group
