I have only recently discovered the beautiful venue of Myross Wood and am delighted to be welcomed to hold this event there. As well as a picnic, the day will encompass workshops and the opportunity to hear something of some of the choirs local to the area. This is the first West Cork BIG SING! Singing Picnic and the hope is to hold more in various locations around West Cork…. and further afield.
Programme of the day:
11am: Tea, coffee and chat about the West Cork BIG SING! project and it’s possible future direction and activities.
12pm: Songwriting workshop, “What singing (and/or being part of a choir) means to me”.
1pm: Singing Circle – a warm up session singing short and easy songs with Jane Goss.
2pm: Picnic – bring a chair, blanket and food and drink to share. Choirs sing!
2.30pm: Childrens’ Singing Session with Lisa Canty (under 5’s to be accompanied by an adult)
3.30pm: Singing Workshop – a combination of larger songs from the existing BIG SING! collection plus some new ones with Caz Jeffreys.
5.00pm: Social: A chance to drink tea, chat and to take the time to walk around the grounds, enjoying the beautiful trails before you leave.
Suggested donation of €10 per person
In the event of bad weather the event will continue with ample sized indoor spaces to meet, sing and picnic together.
Children are welcome and parents must take full responsibility for their safety.
If you need to bring your dog, please ensure that they are kept on a lead.
