YOUNG musicians have the chance to discover British folk traditions in the summer holidays thanks to Halsway Manor's Hothouse residential course.

Now in its fifth year, prior experience as a musician or singer is essential for Hothouse, but it's no problem if you are new to folk.

Young people aged 13-25 are invited on the fun but intensive experience from July 28 to August 2, culminating in a live performance to a festival audience at Sidmouth Folkweek.
