The Southern Early Music Forum (SEMF) exists to encourage the singing and playing of early music in southern England. To support this aim, we organise regular tutored workshops and playing days for singers and/or players of appropriate instruments.

A diary of current and forthcoming activities is available from the events menu. Events are normally open to both members and non-members.

From March 2020, Covid 19 restrictions prevented us from holding “live” workshops, but we continued to arrange regular online events. In 2021 we were able to hold two live (socially distanced) workshops, as well as several online workshops and talks. This year (2022) we are planning a full programme of live workshops; we also hope to maintain a limited programme of online events.

See the events menu for details of both live and online events.

Contact information for SEMF’s committee members can be found on the Committee page.

SEMF is a registered charity (Registered Charity Number 1197797)
