Away 2 Sing has organised a fun weekend of singing for men, based at the amazing Smith's Hotel in Weston Super Mare.

Men (wives and partners are welcome too), whether you sing in a choir or whether you want a fun weekend away singing or learning more about singing, come and join us. We'll be based at Smith's Hotel right on Weston's beautiful sea front. With the beach just across the road, a wide prom, balmy sea breezes, what more could you want other than a good weekend of singing?

Whether you think you have a good voice or not, you'll be very welcome. We'll provide all music copies you'll need but the ability to read music itself is not necessary.

Learning tracks will be available in advance where necessary. With learning time at a premium, we always use music in the finalé
 concert. Led by Peter Davies and Colet Patmore-Hill, both highly experienced teachers and choral leaders, we'll learn more about how to sing well and look after our voices as well as rehearsing for the Sunday afternoon finalé concert with Worle Chorale in the wonderful surrounds and acoustics of St John's Parish Church. 

Time will be available during Saturday afternoon to explore the town, beach and pier. Full details along with a sample itinerary and costs are available from our website: The deadline for receipt of bookings is Friday 24th February 2017 but places are limited and bookings are already coming in so don't miss out!
