Beautiful New Venue For Martin's Sheffield Workshops

Great news about Martin's September workshop in Sheffield! The Beauchief Hotel which has been the venue for Martin's workshop for many years now, has been sold and has reduced it's room capacity by more than 50%, which means that we are unable to hold the workshop there in future. This was a bit of surprise at first but we think it's led to a fortuitous move!

We have done a lot of hotel searching in Sheffield and are delighted to say that we have arranged to hold the workshop in The Kenwood Hall, a beautiful 4 Star hotel in 11 acres stunning grounds, 1 mile from Sheffield city centre.

Kenwood Hall has free on-site parking and a well-equipped leisure club, including an indoor pool, sauna, steam room, spa bath and gym.

The hotel provides spacious rooms, all with classical décor and many with views of the lake and gardens. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel.

Kenwood Hall is within easy reach of Sheffield's many international restaurants and its popular shopping district. The scenic landscape of the Peak District and Sheffield City Centre are both easily accessible.

There are 12 elegant Victorian-style meeting rooms, perfect for events and we have booked one of them for Martin's September workshop.

The room rate is £110 per night which includes all meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner), a constant supply throughout the day of soft drinks, water, tea and coffee for participants and, very usefully, notepads and pens!

The hotel telephone number is 0114 258 3811 and you can find the hotel on line at

Prices: £225.00 tuition only. Hotel prices: £110 per night. Please mention the workshop when booking to enable the hotel to arrange sufficient refreshments throughout the day.

Once your booking has been confirmed by Kit Bailey or Martin Simpson, a £75.00 is required by cheque, payable to Brass Tacks to the address below.
