Event description

16.30 - 17.15  Children's Concert

What was it like to be a child evacuee during the War? Through music, pictures, storytelling and simple props, Kate Romano and the Goldfield Ensemble tell the story of Maggie, her two brothers and the adventure of their evacuation. Using texts from genuine tales of evacuees, we explore with sensitivity themes of travel, adventure, of leaving things behind, fitting in and learning new ways. Our story is illustrated with short extracts from chamber music by Finzi, Alwyn and Howells - some of which was composed against the backdrop of the two world wars – plus a number of original arrangements. Sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant, join us for an imaginative and interactive celebration of remembrance.

 Please bring a cushion to sit on, there will be chairs for adults!
