Medieval Tongue Twisters
Would you like to try a new skill that not many people you know have ever tried? Come to this workshop and learn to sing some medieval songs – in a friendly atmosphere. You will also be able to find out about some of the least known aspects of medieval music – including tongue twisters, sung consonants and other special vocal effects.
No previous experience of medieval music, musical notation or singing necessary. Recommended for age 16+.
This workshop is programmed alongside the Doors Open Day and Explorathon festival which will run at the ARC from 16-17 September.
