Culture Vannin’s annual Bree workshop weekend offers a chance for all young singers, musicians, dancers and actors to get creative with traditional Manx culture during Autumn half term. On Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th October, students aged 10 to 18 are invited to join local tutors at the Youth Arts Centre in Douglas to work on a number of Manx traditional songs, tunes, dances and stories to be presented at a concert at 3pm on the Sunday afternoon.
During the weekend, students can opt to take workshops in playing or singing, drama, composing and song-writing in English or Manx, and everyone takes part in a final concert on the Sunday afternoon.
It is only £10 to attend the whole weekend, and although no experience of Manx music or Gaelic is needed, instrumentalists are expected to be competent on their instrument.
APPLICATION FORM available here: www.manxmusic.com
DEADLINE for applications: Friday 20 October.
