Event description

Description

WHAT IS IT? ~ JACOBS WELLS COMMUNITY SINGING is based in Jacobs Wells Community Hub and offers an opportunity for you to find your voice, meet other members of your community and learn some simple songs.

WHO IS IT FOR? ~Whether you have just turned 10 or are nudging 100, if you have always wanted to sing but never quite plucked up the courage, then these Thursday Evenings might be for you. Aimed at the communities of BS1 & BS8 postcodes however ALL ARE WELCOME

WHEN IS IT? ~ Aiming for most Thursdays - Arrival is from 6.30pm and we will start promptly at 6.45pm, aiming to finish at 8.15pm.

WHERE IS IT?


HOW WILL IT WORK? ~
We always begin with some gentle warm up exercises before we move into learning some simple songs. All the songs are taught by ear, occasionally we might print the lyrics on paper but we don't read sheet music.

DO I HAVE TO COMMIT TO A TERM? ~ Between the start of these sessions at the end of May and early September all of the sessions will be bookable on a week by week basis. From September 2017 if there is enough interest we may consider termly, prices will be kept on a sliding scale.

WHERE DO THE TEACHERS COME FROM? ~ Rosalind and Sam live locally and both enjoy singing. Neither are professional singers, they simply love singing.. Recently they both decided they wanted to do more singing, Rosalind sings with a new Eastern European Singing Group called FERN, and is trained in running groups. Sam having left a junior choir last year, began earlier this year to assist a professional singer songwriter and teacher Tallulah Rendall with her workshops.

WHATS THE OVERALL INTENTION WITH THIS COMMUNITY SINGING GROUP? ~ To bring together different members of the BS1 & BS8 community to sing together. If a regular group becomes established then we will look to invite in different teachers for quarterly Saturday or Sunday workshops. We may even decide to perform locally.

CAN I ATTEND IF I DON'T LIVE IN BS8 OR BS1? ~ Yes, ALL BRISTOL WELCOME, however the ticket price is a little higher

WHY SING? ~ Singing is one of the best things we can do for our overall health and wellbeing, especially singing in groups.

WHATS NEXT? ~ Simply choose the date and ticket type right for you and come and join us .

WHY BOOK ONLINE? ~ There are lots of good reasons why we want to encourage you to book online, here are just a few . . .

  • Booking online cuts down on time consuming manual administration both on the day for members of the community hub and afterwards for the community singing leaders
  • Looking ahead to possible applications for future funding, booking electronically allows us to easily collect a little bit of information about you as a participant

WHAT IF I HAVE DIFFICULTIES BOOKING ONLINE? We appreciate and understand that perhaps some members of our community may not be accustomed to online booking, so if thats you, here are two options for you . .

  • In the first instance, please contact the Jacobs Wells Community Hub Team at Jacobs Wells Baths.
  • Secondly, for those of you who rarely visit the online world, one of the Hub Team can collect your cash and fill in the booking details with you.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO SINGING WITH YOU

PLEASE NOTE - THERE WILL BE NO SINGING ON THURSDAY 15TH JUNE
