A day of singing… for the pure joy of it! We shall be exploring a great mix of songs and styles, from golden oldies and international favourites to originals, chosen to inspire people of different abilities and tastes. Some of the songs will be short and simple, some will offer a challenge to those who want it, but all of the songs are chosen with the aim of having a right good sing.
TIMETABLE: The workshop will start promptly at 10.30 am – you’re welcome to arrive anytime after 10.00 am. To help keep our energy up during the day, there will be a refreshments break in the morning, a break for lunch around 1.00 pm and probably a short break in the afternoon. We’ll finish at 4.00 pm.
REFRESHMENTS: Hot drinks, biscuits and fruit will be available, free of charge, at the beginning of the day and during all the breaks. Tap water will be available throughout the day. You’re invited to bring a small amount of food to share for lunch, creating an instant feast between us. However, if you prefer to cater for yourself separately, that’s fine.
VENUE: This workshop will be held in the Quaker Meeting House in the popular Clarendon Park area of Leicester. It provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere to a whole range of groups. We shall be singing in the large meeting room, which looks out onto a small, private garden. Access: This venue is accessible to disabled people.
LOCATION: The meeting house is a 15 minute drive from the M1 and M69 and about a 20 minute walk from Leicester Railway Station. Perfect for a browse around some independent shops or cafes nearby after the workshop… or a 30 minute walk to Leicester City Centre and the King Richard III visitor centre.
