We went to a recital here and it was a lot of fun. Some of the students are very talented. Fun to see what a local academy offers students. Well worth an hour. If this review is helpful then please indicate so below.

We had read about this Academy in the Daily Telegraph (even left them with a copy which they were delighted with). They will put on a show just for you - they are all youngsters - do go and support them.

Go to their website (champeyacademy org) I am sure you will find the address there. There is a map that provides directions. It is not on a main road but tucked in behind buildings and accessed by a narrow lane.
