If you're aged 10 - 18 and have a creative flair for music, song, dance, or storytelling, you are warmly invited to join a number of local tutors at Culture Vannin's Bree workshop weekend at the Youth Arts Centre in Douglas, on the 29th and 30th October.


Bree is a Manx Gaelic word meaning vitality, or energy, which aptly describes the group of students from school years 6 - 13, who meet monthly to pursue their interest in Manx traditional music and dance. Members of the group are given the opportunity of meeting for informal music sessions, public performances and workshops.


Additionally, students can also apply for the up and coming Big Bree Workshop Weekend, with a choice of music, song, drama, composition, or song writing in either English, or Manx Gaelic. The weekend concludes with a concert on Sunday afternoon, when past members, tutors and students' families are invited to celebrate the group's tenth birthday.


At just £10 for the entire weekend, experience of Manx music, or the language, is not necessary, although musicians are expected to be competent on their chosen instrument.


For more information about Bree contact Dr Chloë Woolley, the Manx Music Development Officer for Culture Vannin.


Application forms can be downloaded from The Manx Music website - deadline 21st October 2017.
