A former Northumberland music teacher and experienced singing coach is offering the chance to explore old and long-forgotten songs in a special workshop series.

Margaret Watchorn is looking back at five different types of music through informal and relaxed workshops which are suitable for beginners right up to more advanced voices.

The former Duchess’s Community High School teacher’s series started last week, but runs until July.

Her upcoming workshops include Songhunters (April 11); The Oak and the Ash, a celebration of England’s trees (May 9); Waterloo – much more than Abba! A look at songs from the Napolenoic Wars (June 6); and Ye Jacobites by name, a look at the 1715 uprising (July 4).

Tickets are £10. To book, call 01665 576245.
