Dates for the 2019 series of course will, as usual, be posted soon after Christmas.      Anyone interested - please drop me an email so I can put you on my mail list.    It would be helpful to know what time of year would suit - spring and later summer courses are the norm.

Anyone interested in a non-residential weekend course either for themselves or a group please get in touch via email.     We can try and arrange a mutually convenient weekend.    The cost per person for a one day course is £55 - discounts offered for groups.

Note that numbers are limited to 5 persons per course.    You need to pay your £150 deposit via the the Pay Pal button below to secure a place – first come, first served!     For those coming with a spouse or partner there is a 20 percent discount for the second student.

The course fee of £775 covers 6 nights accommodation, bed and breakfast (home made bread, eggs and jam plus cereals, tea and coffee) plus 5 days tuition including coffee, lunch and the big traditional evening meal.    Ample supplies of beer and wine are included!      We also collect direct from Alnmouth railway station.   In 2019 we again expect to use the corner cottage in the square at Newton by the Sea as accommodation for students.    The cottage is comfortably furnished on this pretty square about 40 meters from the beach - a really unique setting.
