Latest October Update

13th Oct 2022

Daily News getting you down? Come and escape to SFOWE Bluegrass and Old-Time heaven.

This time next week, the SFSS team will be getting things “ship shape” in anticipation for your arrival at Sore Fingers October Weekend (SFOWE) a week tomorrow.

Just to clarify:

• Arrival date is Friday 21st Oct
2022 between 3pm and 7pm.

• Departure date is Sunday 23rd Oct 2022 from 3.30pm

• Venue is: Kingham Hill School, near Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, OX7 6TH.

Bookings are open, so you still have a few days to register for what is known as the Chilled Out Sore Fingers - a little more relaxed and less intense than the Easter week.

There are places available on all courses and if you wish to book, please try and do so before Wednesday 19th, which is the day we transition our operations to Kingham Hill School. Although we are happy accept booking right up until classes start on the Saturday 22nd things run much more smoothly if you can get your booking in sooner.

You can call us on 0781 453 5106 or 07480 864947 or send us an email to as we will be re-connected from Thursday 20th.

See the courses page for the class list and you can get your booking form from the "bookings" page
