We are delighted to present our showcase entertainment guide for each Tuesday and Friday of Summer School. Each gala performance starts at 8pm unless otherwise stated and is ticket only, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

In a change to the programme, we shall, once again, be offering Tuesday and Friday Gala Performances to complement an excellent series of evening lectures and recitals which will be available throughout each week. Tickets are not required for these events (except the Galas which must be booked in advance) but Summer School customers will be required to show their ID card on entry. These high quality events are open to the public and there will be a small charge on the door for visitors who are not signed up for courses in that week.

We have a "fast-track” booking system if customers want to only book entertainment tickets and not courses. Please note if customers have already booked courses then they should contact the office to amend their original booking.Customers should register first on the homepage if they have not already done so and then go to the Entertainment page in the Main Menu and click on Gala Performances. They should then click the Add to Booking button and the ticket will appear in the shortlist. Customers can then checkout of the booking and pay through the secure payment website as usual.

Some additional evening ‘tasters' are available throughout the week, and can be booked through the Summer School office on a first come, first served basis. These may include an early evening downland walk for those who have the energy, bridge evenings, taiko drumming, yoga and clayshooting. We also offer weekend excursions, a quiz night and live music – or you can simply just relax in the quieter corners of the College.

The Summer School bar is situated in the Marquee for refreshments at lunchtime and during the evening. The venue is an ideal place to meet friends, have a drink and discuss your day, while enjoying the wide variety of entertainments on offer each day.

The College facilities are available to all members of Summer School when not being used for courses. Superb sporting facilities include an indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, an athletics track, and much more.
