We welcome visitors, both performers and supporters, from far and wide to the Hinckley ACT. They always receive a warm welcome and its always interesting to find out a bit about them.

Introducing Creative Vacances
Jenny and Chris run Creative Vacances, a very successful music holiday venue in South West France and Kev Dempsey runs, along with Joe Brought, one of their most successful workshops. Kev is a great teacher and for three years has been coaxing wonderful music out of the guitarists who come but Jenny and Chris was keen to see him play his own material on stage.
Creative Vacances have extended their range of courses in 2012. New for this year is Gypsy jazz workshop, a folk mandolin week, a singing and strumming workshop with Diane Ponzio, a great ambassador for Martin Guitars, and a songwriting course with one of the best songwriters in the UK – Angie Palmer.
Jenny and Chris went on to explain…
“We offer a wide range of music courses and workshops for electric and acoustic guitar, fiddle and saxophone, covering many musical genres such as folk, jazz, blues and rock – all aimed at beginners through to accomplished musicians.
“At Creative Vacances we offer the chance to get away from the distractions of life and indulge in your passion for playing music.
“Our cottages in the Charente Maritime in South West France are surrounded by vines and sunflowers and is the venue for our all inclusive music holidays.”
