All About BAY

The idea of BAY (Battle Abbey Youth) was established approximately five years ago when, courageously, Judith and I agreed to develop a five day, non - residential choral course, primarily aimed at students who, quite simply, enjoyed the experience of singing and making music as a group.  Find out more...
