Non-NWEMF Workshops
Please send information to: Note that with the cessation of publication of the Early Music Review's Diary - my principal source of information - this listing will inevitably become briefer. I shall continue actively to research our own & the workshops of our contiguous EMFs (BMEMF, EMFScotland, MEMF, NEEMF), Benslow, Farncombe, Jackdaws, Lacock, Rondo & West Dean. Summer Schools and other workshops will only be included in the Contacts section, unless I am sent specific information by the organisers.
