Buddy and I are booked onto this workshop at the Science Museum in London. I’m evangelical about the benefits of singing, having taken part in some great singing sessions on wards for elderly people and also being priviliged to hear the Broadmoor Hospital Vocal Group. Inspiredly and inclusively and joyously, the Group members are both staff and patients.
The workshop is on 25 January 2011, from 7-9PM. Details here. This is what they write about the gig:

So, join up, join in and let us know your wonderful ideas – and if you can donate to us or fundraise for us, we would be delighted to hear from you. Thank you for all you do.
