Kilve Annual Concertina Weekend

The Kilve Annual Concertina Weekend is hosted by the West Country Concertina Players (www.wccp.co.uk) at Kilve Court, a former large country house now used by the Local Authority for residential courses.

The weekend normally comprises an exciting combination of workshops, sessions, a concert, a ceildh and lots more (details on the web site).

This weekend is primarily intended for post beginners, intermediate and advanced players. A weekend specifically for beginners is normally held in October (2007: 19-21 October).
