Local UK Groups

There are currently four Companion Voices learning groups in the UK, located in Brighton, Hertfordshire (Kings Langley),  The South West (Bristol), and Cambridge.

We are also planning introductory sessions in Leamington and Bingley in early 2020 – please let us know if you’d like to attend one of these.

There was also a group established in London and this will restart there once a venues and leader are in place.

Please note, these are closed groups so venues and costs are given on enquiry.


Please Contact Us if you’d like to find out more about visiting or joining Companion Voices.
