Arriving and departing

Normally we ask guests to check in after about 4pm on the first day of a course. When this is different the course description should say so. If you have made a long journey and expect to arrive early please let us know.

Your welcome pack includes your key, vital information about Benslow Music, a course timetable, delegate list and an evaluation form. Tea, coffee and cake is available until the bar opens at 6pm. Dinner is served at 6.30pm. If you are likely to arrive late, please let us know as soon as you can and we will make arrangements to set a meal aside for you.

Most courses end with tea and cakes at 4pm on the final day, although the time can slightly vary from course to course. Day courses begin at 10am. We break for an hour’s lunch at 1pm and end around 5pm.
