Sponsored by the Buddy Holly Educational Foundation, the Chris Difford Songwriting Retreat is like no other writer retreat. With over 30 successful or up and coming artists from all over the world, the retreat provides an amazing opportunity for artists to collaborate with one another to write new songs and create new friendships in a relaxed setting.
During the week–long intimate retreat, each day Chris, himself a two time Ivor Novello Award winner, organises the artists in to small groups. They head off to various parts of the house or gardens and write all day.
In the evening the artists all gather after dinner to show and tell, or play acoustic performances. Late nights are spent playing together and on the final night they perform a concert of the best songs.
