A special event for Yamaha fans at The Hellidon Lakes Hotel

The Yamaha Club Weekend:  27th-30th October 2017

The Yamaha Club’s annual get-together in October  2017 is totally devoted to Yamaha instruments and we are returning, with a host of the country’s top players, teachers and technicians, to the superb 4-star Hellidon Lakes Hotel in Daventry, Northamptonshire.   Eight sparkling lakes are behind the hotel’s name and, surrounded by 220 acres of delightfully peaceful grounds, the Hellidon Lakes Hotel is one of our very favourite venues.

The event features some of the best known stars of the Yamaha organ and keyboard - including a rare appearance by Martin Harris (the man responsible for the creation of all the sounds, styles and other music content in Yamaha keyboards and Clavinovas), Chiho Sunamoto & Jon Smith, John Beesley, Yamaha’s premier UK demonstrator Ian House, and some of the past ‘masters’, James Sargeant, Richard Bower and Glyn Madden.  They are also joined by the wonderful David Harrild of TRX Organ Systems, technical wizards Steve Marsden and Daniel Watt, and not forgetting their resident Yamaha Club music teacher Gill Eccles.   

Throughout each day these stalwarts of the music industry will be presenting a programme packed with workshops, tutorials and mini concert demonstrations – so, if there's anything you want to know about your keyboard or Clavinova, this is undoubtedly the place to find out!  Add to that evenings filled with great music and lovely food and you have the recipe for an enjoyable and rewarding mini-festival break.

If you'd like to join them you'll be made very welcome - and I'm sure you'll have a great time at a very special event that is specifically geared to players and enthusiasts of the Yamaha keyboard and Clavinova brand.
