There is a discount of £50 for those who bring a harpsichord or spinet (and tune it daily) and a discount of £25 each for those who share a twin room. Non-participant partners are welcome to share your room at a cost of £390 for accommodation and meals (after twin room discount). Book early to secure an ensuite room — these are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Please make your cheque payable to Baroque Week, or contact us for account details to send by bank transfer, internet banking, or PayPal (sorry, we do not take card payments).

It may be possible to attend for part of the week — please contact us to discuss this. However you may not gain the benefit of taking full part in the course; also you may need to book into a local B&B unless we have spare bedrooms on the school site, and we may not be able to confirm this until June.

Please note that Baroque Week is a course for adults. Gifted youngsters have occasionally attended, usually accompanied by an adult course participant. If you will be under 18 years old at the start of the course please ask for our Young Student Permission Form for your parent or guardian to complete.
