Creating Music Together
Museum Song-Writing Group



On Zoom and WhatsApp
To join us please email



Our Song-writing Group meet fortnightly to work with amazing composers, singers and musicians to create new music inspired by the stories in our collection.

We use stories from the museum’s archives and from our own lives as inspiration to write songs together. Perfect for anyone who like to sing, write lyrics, play an instrument or just get creative. Join our facilitators Joe Steele and Michael Betteridge for music-making over zoom to brighten up the winter nights.

No previous musical experience necessary.
