Our house is now permanently fully kitted up for Livestream concerts. Full PA and lighting rig give us as close to studio sound as we can possibly get. Here’s a list of the adverts for our events that show a little insight into what we do to get these shows as good as possible!

Here is a playlist of some of the videos we made during this time:
Vicki has been working very hard on YouTube – with well over 250 hundred videos, so this playlist is a handpicked list of our favourites!

Join us in the Bar at Halsway!
We filmed 15 virtual sessions (including 3 beginner sessions) in the bar at Halsway.
To keep these sessions going we are requesting that people buy us coffees.
50 coffees gets 2 sessions…
