    Children’s Singing Workshop

    2:15pm
    Boxgrove Priory, West Sussex

    The Beaufort Singers are delighted to be hosting ‘Come and Sing at Boxgrove’. This event is for children in school years 2-6.

    The afternoon will consist of a fun singing workshop with members of The Beaufort Singers, incorporating a range of songs from countries around the world. The session will start at 2:30pm (registration from 2:15pm) and there will be a short informal performance for family and friends at 4:15pm.

    The workshop is completely free in our aim to allow anyone to take part: no musical experience is required and we hope this might provide a unique and exciting opportunity for those who have experienced little music-making outside of the National Curriculum, as well as for more experienced young singers. The emphasis will be on enjoying a fun, creative and social afternoon, bringing together local children from across West Sussex alongside young professional musicians.

    **** Register your child's place here. Places are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment! ****

    We ask that a parent/guardian remains in the Priory for the duration of the afternoon, as you will be responsible for your child at all times. You are welcome to watch the workshop, and there will be drinks and snacks provided.

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email Susie at beaufortsingers@gmail.com. We hope to see you there!
