October Half Term
Sat 27 October to Sunday 4 November
12:30pm - 3.30pm
We discovered out how every generation has enjoyed music in a different way.
Families could try their hand in a 50s skiffle band, hear the crackle of vinyl on an original 70s record player, dance round an 80s Boombox and find out what came next in our technology timeline.
We'll also explored the science of sound to find out how you can send messages using a simple paper cup!
During the summer holidays Marlie Carter Edwards, Tiegan Carter Edwards, Carmen Mackey and Kellie Mackie wrote, performed and recorded a unique song in just one day at our Bob Marley inspired songwriting workshop!
Find out how they got on below.
After exploring Bob Marley - Messenger for inspiration, the girls settled down to write their own lyrics before recording them with the help of Nathan Timothy from THE SONGWRITING CHARITY.
Plus… special guest appearances from Jim Edwards and Lucy Mackey!
While Nathan put together the finishing touches, Marlie, Tiegan, Carmen and Kellie came up with their band name: 4Girls 1Song
And a new pop sensation is born! Their track was so good it has ended up as the soundtrack for THE SONGWRITING CHARITY's new project. Well done girls!
