Jackie Oates sitting in front of a piano holding her violin. Her baby is asleep in pushchair in foreground.

English folk songs can teach us a great deal about the lives of children and adults living in rural places in days gone by; their jobs, their lives and the things that they thought about. Jackie will teach a range of songs connected to objects in the museum, together with beautiful harmonies and arrangements.

No experience necessary – just bring your voices!

Suitable for families with children aged 0 -11. Adults must stay with their children throughout the session.
