+ Chris Eyre 1924-2015
We’re very sorry to announce the death of Chris Eyre on 11th February 2015.  Chris was Secretary for the Recorder Summer School for fourteen years until 1987 but had come to the course as a student since the mid 1960s.  She was a familiar face among our students right up until a couple of years ago and always had an amusing tale to tell about past courses.  She died peacefully at the age of 90 after a short illness and will be missed by everyone who knew her.
Her family are asking that any donations in Chris’s memory are made to the SRP Walter Bergmann Fund.  If you would like to make a contribution please send your donation, made out to SRP (WBF) to the funeral directors at the following address: G M Lunt Ltd – 36 Abbey Lane – Sheffield – S8 0GB



Saturday 1st – Saturday 8th August


The Recorder Summer School is a large course, with up to 130 students and 9 tutors and the atmosphere is always friendly and encouraging.

We welcome recorder players at all levels from elementary to advanced.  All students must be familiar with both C and F instruments.  Players should be over 16 years of age (or 15, if accompanied by an adult course member). Although many of the players are from the UK, in recent years we welcomed players from America, Germany, Hong Kong, Norway, The Netherlands, Spain and Israel. We hope that you will enjoy finding out more about the course by browsing these website pages.

  • Directors:  Marion Scott, Eileen Silcocks and Tom Beets
