As the days wane, the nights close in and the trees don their vibrant hues, a chill creeps into the air. Leaves take to the air in an elegant dance, pirouetting around the tree trunks to their own orchestral rustling; not the bite of wintry blusters, but just a nip to let us know a new season is at hand. Welcome it with our ‘Music in Autumn’ break, with local talents entertaining you in our magnificent Music Room on select evenings and enjoy the vibrant colours on offer during the day in and around Sidmouth.

The 3 night Circle Dancing Break draws on the rich and diverse traditional dances of many countries around the world, as well as a growing repertoire of new dances to classical music and contemporary songs. Dances can be energetic and lively or gentle and reflective.  Though the dances chosen reflect the abilities of the group, the aim is always to experience the joy of dancing with others and to create a sense of well-being and community. Whatever your age or ability you can circle dance! Each dance is taught, so no experience or partner is necessary.

Meet one of our guides....

Jen Larner          

Born in Essex, Jen has lived in many areas of the country, with a very varied career, mostly in community work projects including running a year-long festival to celebrate John Skelton, setting up a dial-a-ride bus scheme, arranging work placements for students on vocational courses, being a warden at Quaker meeting houses and teaching Esperanto at evening class. 

Jen started doing international folk dancing in her 20's at a time when it was all very new.   She continued this 'circle' dancing wherever she moved to, loving the variety of music and the chance to try out dances from all over the world.  Liking the differences in the dances - from slower, meditative ones to fast and furious!   As a single person Jen appreciates the fact that you don't need a partner, and yet you are not dancing alone but in a supportive group.

Jen really enjoys  seeing people experience circle dancing, usually for the first time, and the process of their assimilating the steps through working as a group and building a sense of community, through laughter as we invent  'variations', and fun!   Jen relishes the challenge of adapting dances for those with more limited mobility, including those confined to chairs, and has done a lot of work in nursing and residential homes. It's very satisfying to see people who thought their dancing days were over moving to stimulating music.

Come and enjoy the build-up to Christmas with us at Lindors on a holiday filled with the ‘Sound of Brass’. Enjoy some great musical entertainment in our country hotel, and join us as we attend the annual Christmas concert of the Championship Section Lydbrook band.

There is nothing like the sound of a brass band, particularly in the build-up to Christmas. The Forest of Dean, an old mining community, has some of the best: this short break at Lindors will consist of musical entertainment within the hotel, as well as an evening out to enjoy the performance of a Championship section band in all its bombastic glory. Enjoy an afternoon tea on arrival, and an optional programme of morning and evening devotions throughout your stay. At this time, the hotel will be decorated in all its Christmas finery, the fire will be lit, and there will be gifts available to purchase in our small giftshop. Why not treat yourselves to a special getaway before the Christmas rush really gets going?
