Music Making – for Mossley Light Festival

logo-dark
Join our fun Carnival band and bring the beats to the streets. Leading up to the ‘big night’ we are holding four open workshops led by the fabulous Iain Mellor for individuals, family groups or community groups to join. The workshops will culminate in a fizzing final parade performance to show off your new rhythms. The sessions will be lighthearted, with an element of surprise, (it’s Iain, say no more) and grounded in his decades of experience. We’d like you to attend all 4 sessions, that way we can have the most fun as we learn together to play a unique piece of music created especially for Mossley Light Festival. Every parade needs a band, join us!
