Christmas Carol Harp Workshop @ Hungerford Hub & Library
Dec 16 @ 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm

A chance to learn a Christmas carol on the harp and perform at the Mayor’s Carol Service the same day with Hands on Harps.

The workshop will be at Hungerford Hub on the afternoon of Sunday 16th December2:30-4:30pm.

Here’s an idea of what to expect:

A quick warm up and introduction

Learning Little Donkey

Festive tea break

Arranging and polishing the tune

The concert is that evening at 6:30pm at St Lawrence Church. So we’ll need to be there at 6pm at the latest. Hopefully this gives participants enough time to eat in between but not enough time to forget the tune and arrangement!

Cost will be £25. Only 6 spaces available! All harps provided. Some musical experience will be helpful but not essential!
