Tickets for performances should usually be bought from the venue – I will include links to the appropriate sites here, whenever possible.
Singing the sounds of Weston
I’ve spent the autumn visiting Weston-super-Mare, being inspired by singing with the people here, listening to songs and stories and delving into the past at the Weston Museum.
