NONSUCH ANNUAL WEEKEND & 25th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION
20th - 23rd OCTOBER 2017
The Nonsuch Dulcimer Club is pleased to invite you to join us at our Annual Weekend, which this year is a special 3 day event celebrating our 25th anniversary. We are returning to the very successful venue that we used in 2015, Malvern St. James School in Great Malvern. Tucked in below the scenic Malvern Hills, it's a lovely spot and also right opposite the train station.
We will have a full programme of workshops for both Hammered Dulcimer and Mountain Dulcimer players of all levels, concerts, a ceilidh with caller, and plenty of room for sessions. We have a wide range of guest tutors from the USA, Europe and the UK. Jody Marshall, Amanda Lowe (pictured top and bottom left) & Sue Harris will be featured on Hammered Dulcimer, and Rob Brereton, Michel Terlinck (pictured top and bottom right) & Robin Clark on Mountain Dulcimer.

Dulcimer World Congress Outreach Programme
Following the great success of our outreach programme involving 10 Worcestershire Schools, we are pleased to announce our Dulcimer Education Pack, featuring cross-curricular activities around the Worldwide Dulcimer Family of instruments targetted at Key Stage 2.
Mat Fox Bursary Scheme Announced
The club wants to provide a lasting and practical memorial to one of our best loved tutors, Mat Fox, who died suddenly in early 2014 at the age of 57. Mat was an excellent player of the hammered dulcimer, but above all an inspiring educator of young people. Therefore we have created a scheme to support one young person each year, aged between 16 and 25, to buy or loan a dulcimer and get good quality tuition on it (normal maximum £250).
Applications should be made by 31st December for funding in the following year 1st April to 31st March. A repeat application by a previously successful bursary holder will be considered on its merits. Download the details here
