Queens Hotel Eastbourne

February 2019 Accordion Weekend – Half Board

Message from John Romero and Carillon Studios

“Due to a number of issues, we have over the past months been considering what to do with our festivals and have in fact been considering shutting them down. We have however recently been offered help and it is with great pleasure we can announce Gennaro Fiondella and Colette McKeown are about to join our team. This will enable our Accordion Weekend Holidays to continue on into the foreseeable future”.

There will be loads more information to come as we get the festival organised and we are now taking bookings above.

Accordions Together

What better way to spend for an accordion-lover to spend St Valentine’s weekend listening to the instrument they love!  No doubt some accordion widows and widowers would have something to say about that statement.  Nevertheless, this weekend promises to to enthral even the unconverted. Great line-up of accordionists from all genres of accordion music: Pearl Adriano, Ian Watson, Julie North, Colin Walker, Jovan Rnjak, Harry Hussey and John Romero. There will be classes given by Ian Watson, Julie North   and Angie Lukins too.
