This autumn we will be running our very first Pop-Up Choir with experienced vocal leader Beccy Owen. This will be a series of 8 singing workshops, welcoming people of all ages, backgrounds, musical abilities and tastes. We will work a cappella (without any instrumental accompaniment) and have loads of fun. The emphasis is on enjoyment, not perfection. Beginners are welcome and you do not need to be able to make every week to take part. All resources and instruction provided.

Cost £2 per person, per session. Bookable in advance through Gala Box Office. Call 03000 266 600 or pay on the day.
