Vocal improvisation workshop

Sun 28 April, 10.30am - 1pm

Briony is at the forefront of improvisational artistry, fusing elements from folk, soul and jazz to create a sound described as “Joni Mitchell meets Gil Scott Heron, with a British accent.”

Open up your voice and play, co-creating music in the moment with others. In this 3-hour 'playshop' we’ll deeply inhabit the body, warm up the voice and get it roaming; drop into presence and deep listening, and find out what music the Void has in store for us...

"[Briony is] one of the world’s leading proponents of Collaborative Vocal Improvisation - CVI."

- The Guardian

Briony Greenhill in concert | 27 April

Briony will also be giving us a concert the previous evening. Guests coming for both events have the option to camp overnight at Alfoxton. See below for details.

You must book separately for each event.



The nearest railway stations are Bridgwater and Taunton. We are about 1h 15min from Bristol by car. 

The 15 bus leaves Bridgwater at 16:50 during college term dates and stops at the Plough Inn in Holford. We are a 15min walk from there.

Please get in touch for further advice with public transport, or for help arranging lifts / carpools.

Make sure to put "Coach House 2, Alfoxton Park" into Google Maps. Other variations will take you to Alfoxton House nearby which is not us. Otherwise use grid reference 51.165187, -3.220080.

Guests wishing to attend both the concert on the 27th and the workshop on the 28th are invited to camp here on Saturday night, in tents or live-in vehicles. You must book separately for each event, and specify you wish to camp when asked in the concert booking form.

We have limited space indoors available for people with particular needs - please inquire when you book if this is the case for you.


Feel free to bring your own vegetarian food to share for lunch on Sunday.

accessibility & diets

We are committed to Alfoxton being a fully accessible venue and are working hard to achieve this. However, while the renovation work continues, visitors with specific mobility or accommodation needs may experience barriers to accessing all areas of the building and land.

If you have any questions or concerns, just get in touch, and please inform us of any significant dietary or accessibility requirements before submitting your booking request.


Alfoxton Park is a charity and works on the principle of dana or a 'gift economy'. Read more about dana here.

A £25 deposit will secure your place on the workshop. No deposit is required if you only wish to attend the concert. You will be invited to make a donation to Alfoxton when you're here.

technology, alcohol and drugs

All of our events are alcohol and drug free.

During the meditation retreats we ask you to turn off your mobile phones and other devices and not contact people outside of the retreat. 

For all other events and workshops we ask you to be mindful of the use of devices and stay present, in order to make the most of your time here.
