Birdsong Weekend at Asthall Manor

Jun 14, 2019

14th, 15th & 16th June

A glorious weekend of walks, concerts and the opportunity to sing like a bird. Plus the Potting Shed café, in our walled garden, will be open during the weekend.

Birdsong Concerts Two garden concerts by The Conference of Birds (, of birdsong-inspired music interspersed with wild gypsy fiddling as the real birds of Asthall sing around the natural pool.

Please use the links below to book:

Sing like a bird studio visit Throughout the weekend, film-maker Sunny Moodie will turn you into the bird of your choice, by filming you reproducing a slowed down birdsong, speeding it up to the speed of the original birdsong, and playing it back. Bookable 10-minute studio slots.

To book a studio visit, email for available slots
