Manchester Sings:

Family Songwriting Workshop

 Saturday 20 October 2018

This event has now passed 

What does Manchester mean to you?


As a starting point, this family songwriting workshop uses the histories and stories of Manchester to develop a song together, with a series of fun and engaging games to get the creative juices flowing and get participants sharing stories and learning more about this incredible city. 

What to expect

Families should come with their own stories, histories and favourite tales of Manchester, and what it means to them, to contribute to the song that'll be written.


Manchester should be in your mind when you're in the workshop - but don't worry, the workshop leaders will be there on hand to help if you need a bit of guidance. After building the narrative of the song through games and fun exercises, the workshop culminates by bringing it all together with a tune. 

With no musical or writing experience necessary, this welcoming and lively workshop is a chance to create new something new, with your memories, stories and family histories at the heart. 

Age recommendation: 9+
