Event Enquiry

  • Halsway Manor will not share your details with any third parties.

We’re opening our doors to professional folk artists at all stages of their careers wanting a place to write, rehearse, recharge, relax, and be creative. We’re offering full board – accommodation and all meals – from dinner on Monday evening until breakfast on Friday. You’ll be here alongside other artists so if you’re someone who likes to share ideas, experiences, advice and support, then this could be right up your street.

Booking is by application. We’re limiting this opportunity to around 15 – 20 artists, and we’ll be asking for a financial contribution towards your place (subsidised by Halsway).

Halsway Manor, set in beautiful West Somerset has a variety of resources, including the biggest folk library collection outside of London, large and small rehearsal spaces, and a lovely wood panelled bar (with log fire, naturally). There’s direct footpath access from the Manor onto the Quantock Hills, the coast is 5 minutes’ drive away, and there are views to Exmoor from our door. Nearest mainline station is Taunton, from which there’s a regular bus service stopping an easy 5 minute walk from our door.

The application process will open in September; please check back for more details.
