Ali Burns – Choir for a Day, Songs for Life

14 May 2023


Ancient hall with timber roof beams

This one-day workshop promises to be really special as we’re going to be in the most stunning venue: the ancient Long Hall at Abingdon Abbey near Oxford where we’ll sing in the atmospheric space that’s held celebrations and events for the past 600 years. Ali will be teaching new harmony songs by ear and anyone who enjoys singing is welcome.

Tea and coffee will be provided but please bring your own packed lunch to enjoy in the garden or nearby meadows. There are cafes in the town and Waitrose nearby, but be aware we’re there on a Sunday.

We will include a special tour of the Abbey Buildings and Unicorn Theatre, which are steeped in history and stories.

Because the buildings are medieval, access is unfortunately limited for this workshop. The Gallery is only accessible via a twisting staircase.

Pay what you can afford from a choice of tickets.
