Accordion Festival Listing

This is a list of forthcoming UK accordion festivals in date order. The listing, created by David Batty
of Leyland Accordion club has been compiled to create one definitive listing of all UK accordion
festivals along with an idea of the cost where known, artists appearing and a rough guide to the planned event.

Artist lineups etc are known to change so it would be advisable to check for changes to these details
such as dates, cost and the programme of activities with the festival organiser before
making any bookings or attending any of these events.

The number of days to each event is included in blue to show you how much time you
have left to plan attending the event, how long you have left to save
up to go, or how much time is left to practice the accordion before you go.

Festival Organisers: If you festival is not listed here then send me the details and I will include it.

Software Download

The keyboard trainer / typing tutor software on the link below is written by myself (David Batty of Leyland Accordion Club), this is one part of my day job. Success in selling my software gives me time to run the club, and also helps to fund this website.

I have placed a special downloadable vesion of my keyboard typing tutor software on the link below. I would be grateful if you would also tell your friends about the software.

This typing tutor software will show you how to type or use a computer without having to look down at the keyboard. This is a skill that will save you hours of your life.

As an accordionist you already know about correct fingerwork and how it makes the job easier, now apply the same concept to your computer keyboard and see how much it improves your output.

Typing will become something that just 'happens' without any conscious thought on your part.

Click the link below and choose the option 'Run'. This will download the software and start the installer. (small 3.5 MB download)

You can also click the picture above to see the website the software is normally sold on.

Click the link below and choose the option 'Run'. This will download the software and start the installer. (small 3.5 MB download). You can unlock the software in to a full version for only $15 US Dollars or about £10 Sterling.
