Dissenters do it differently…
Saturday 4 June 5.30pm, Music and Poetry Mix at Stoke Newington Literary Festival, St Matthias Church
Proud to be part of the illustrious and brilliant Stokey Litfest, we present another delightfully short concert featuring two great anthems of personal and sexual freedom, by Vaughan Williams and the Pet Shop Boys, with Philip Glass’s Three Songs for Chorus as an alternative sound from the 1980s. Conducted by Ruth Whitehead.
Do come early and enjoy the St Matthias Church summer fete from 12noon which promises all the fun of the family fair – delicious BBQ, cakes, plants, coconut shy, face-painting and a bouncy castle.
Saturday June 4, 11am: Find Your Voice at Stokey Litfest
Venue – The Drawing Room, Clissold House, Clissold Park
Ever fancied singing in a choir? Young Dissenters, Stoke Newington’s very own choir for 7 to 16 years olds, invites you to join them for this relaxed and family-friendly taster workshop led by Penelope Manser and Harvey Brough. All welcome, no experience necessary. Come and sing about the park and why we love it…..more
All children must be accompanied by an adult and adults must sing too! Parents note – it’s free but you will need tickets as numbers are limited.
Run in partnership with Chorus of Dissent and the Clissold Park User Group.
