On Saturday morning, you’ll kick off the first of three, three-hour workshops! (More on this below!) We’ve selected some of our newest tutors and newest subjects – just for you!

On Saturday night, after a delicious and special dinner – you’ll be treated to even more entertainment!

As a Friend of Denman, we want you to feel that you are important to us, so we hope you’re able to join us!

As you know, there are only so many bedrooms at Denman so we do hope you book asap to avoid any disappointment!
