Performances will run, each day, from 3:00pm to 11:00pm, followed, on Saturday night, by a 'Beatles' sing-along 'til midnight, and a 'special program' on Sunday night. A one-hour 'Dinner Intermission' is scheduled for between 6:00pm and 7:00pm, each night.

Festival-attendees are strongly encouraged to pre-order their 'dinner intermission' meals in advance (available as a ticket-option), to assure timely turn-around between performances.

This two-part 'Songwriting Masterclass' will be held, over the course of two days (Sat & Sun), from 1:00pm to 2:30pm. The two, 90-minute sessions will run, each day, prior to the festival performances. The sessions will be conducted by Dean Friedman , along with expected drop-ins from other SongFest performers/songwriters. The 'Songwriting Masterclass' is available as a ticket 'Add On' priced at £125, and will be limited to 8 attendees, in order to give participants an opportunity to share one of their own compositions, if they desire, for feedback by instructors. Participants are welcome to bring their instruments, with the sole exception of banjo players (Just kidding - we love the banjo!).

Join Boothby, Dean and assorted SongFest Artists at 11:00am Sunday morning for a free-form miniature golf game on the Draycote's Putting Practice Green. Only 12 slots available @25quid per. NOTE: This is a 'free-form' tournament i.e. there are no rules - we just make 'em up as we go along! [Clubs and golf balls will be provided; plus photo-op!] Participation in the B OOTHBY GRAFFOE INVITATIONAL GOLF TOURNAMENT is available as a ticket 'Add On' priced at £25.

Enjoy a lazy Sunday morning, starting at 11:00am, hanging out with SongFest pals, playing your choice of Boardgames, or Cardgames, in the Lobby, courtesy of Nick & Sue of Shiregames, who'll be on hand to answer any questions and provide instructions, if needed. Games include 'Ticket to Ride', 'Catan', 'Dominion', 'Citadels', 'Forbidden Island', as well as the finger-flicking classic, 'Crokinole', and more - card games too. FREE! But please sign-up as an 'Add On' (no charge), so we know how many folks to expect.
