Creating Music Together
Museum Song-Writing Group



Learning Studio



Do you have a passion for music? Do you like the idea of writing your own songs? Do you like being part of group and expressing yourself?

Our song-writing group meets monthly to create new music inspired by the themes and stories in our collection and by the artists and events in our creative programme.

This session will be led by local composer and artist Michael Betteridge as we weave new lyrics and melodies inspired by objects and stories in the museum’s galleries. This group is perfect for anyone who likes to sing, write creatively, play instruments or just loves to be part of something. It’s a great space to find new inspiration and share ideas with a supportive group.

If you’d like to join the group, please email Gemma:
