This is short notice but in case any of you can make it (sent to HFC on email).
Dora Thewlis and Edith Key were prominent women in Huddersfield’s history and very important in the Suffrage movement. The ‘Mice in the Attic’ will tell their stories through a series of events and ‘mini happenings’ over the coming months.
We kick start the project this Saturday in the Packhorse Centre, Huddersfield (map), where we are inviting community singers (no experience needed) to very quickly learn and rehearse a few simple songs from that era, with familiar tunes.
Morning session: Come along at 10am to learn the songs and we’ll be singing between 11.30 and 12.30
Afternoon session: Come along at 1pm to learn the songs and we’ll be singing between 2.30 and 3.30
Or do both!
It will be a very relaxed and fun affair, you’ll need to spare no more than three hours and be up for singing in the public shopping centre. You’ll get a cup of tea and a bun to keep your energy up! If you would like to be part of the very first ‘Mice in the Attic’ event, please e mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.miceintheattic.co.uk Big groups welcome! The more voices, the better!
Pop along and watch.
As well as live singing, there will be a bit of contemporary dance set to a live violinist. If you do not wish to sing but you’d like to come and experience some performance, come to the Packhorse anytime between 11.30am – 12.30pm or 2.30pm – 3.30pm.
