A Song at Twilight: ‘Bring & Sing’ at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse Saturday 15 October 2016 10am – 8pm

Spend the day learning popular Victorian songs and then perform in an early evening concert at the Workhouse!

a-song-at-gressenhall-1This is a unique opportunity to make music in a museum! Explore our new Voices from the Workhouse galleries and sing the songs our Victorian inmates would have known here 150 years ago.

Croon such sentimental delights as ‘Love’s Old Sweet Song’ and ‘After the Ball’ in our cottage parlour, tap your your toes to some well-known Coster choruses in the work yards and raise the chapel roof with Music Hall favourites like ‘Oh Mr Porter’ and ‘My Old Man’.

Invite your friends and family to join us for free after 4.30pm in time for our early evening concert, when the chorus will be joined by local soloists to weave all the songs into a typical Victorian tale of trials, tribulation and salvation!

This brand new event promises to be a day for fun and music in a very unusual setting! Singing experience is not essential and all music and lyrics will be provided.
Dressing up is positively encouraged!
