We will contact you to confirm your accommodation choice and find out more about your workshop preferences and priorities and to know of any previous experience, if any.
Sadly this year it is highly unlikely that there will be a kora gig on the Saturday night at Garway Village Hall.  The funds raised go to The Kora Trust – a registered UK charity that supports projects in Kafountine, Senegal.
