WHAT'S INCLUDED

You will take part in seven rousing singing sessions spread over the weekend with refreshments provided during the breaks. All music will be taught by ear in English, so no singing experience necessary and a booklet of all the songs will be provided. You will be working towards a unique singing walk on the Sunday afternoon where we will sing in public in some wonderful places with glorious acoustics and stories to tell.

These will be introduced by Derek Blyth, renowned author of The 500 Hidden Secrets of Brussels, during an in-depth Hidden Gems walking tour on the Friday afternoon. 

There will be a drinks reception after the first singing session where you can make the acquaintance of your lovely fellow singers from the UK, Brussels and elsewhere.
