A HOLST WEEKEND

Friday 8th - Monday 11th October 2004

Evington Hill Farm, The Leigh, Gloucestershire

The House www.evingtonhillfarm.co.uk

Located between Cheltenham and Tewkesbury, Evington Hill Farm is a lovely old house set in some four acres and dating back to circa 1580. The Gloucestershire History record identifies it as formerly the Manor Court House. The large comfortable beamed sitting room has a wonderful Tudor fireplace with a wood burning stove. Guests take their meals in the characterful surroundings of the heavily beamed dining room.

The Course

Holst is in many respects the least known of the great English composers, and there are countless masterpieces beyond his greatest work, the orchestral suite The Planets. Our weekend will explore the range and nature of his achievement, including a visit to the Holst Birthplace Museum in Cheltenham. There will be musical illustrations on excellent hi-fi equipment.

The weekend is designed as an informal ‘house party’. Guests need only the ability to enjoy music; no technical knowledge will be required.

Terry Barfoot writes widely on music for Britain’s leading journals, orchestras, festivals and record companies. He lectures at venues throughout the country and is Publications Consultant to the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.

The Weekend

Course members will arrive on Friday at 5pm and depart after breakfast on Monday.

Arts in Residence offers an excellent cuisine including a four course dinner with wine every evening.

Cost: £275.00 to include all meals, wine, beverages, course fees and accommodation.

Booking: Arts in Residence, 25, Mulberry Lane, Cosham, Portsmouth, PO6 2QU.

£50.00 per person deposit with booking.

Cheques payable to Arts in Residence.

Enquiries: 02392 383356
