13:30 – 14:30 workshop

15:00 – 16:00 performance


St Pancras Room, Kings Place, 90 York Way, London N1 9AG


How did music come into the world?  Why do we tell stories, and where do they come from?  Meet Anansi, the original Spiderman and join narrators John Webb and Charlotte Mafham and the players of Sinfonia Cymru to take a journey around the world from Africa to South America via Wales and Japan.  This is an interactive family show that plays with rhythm, song, stories and sound and includes lots of opportunities for joining in!


There is also a Family Song-Writing Workshop 13.30 – 14.30 : Join John and the musicians and create a new song to perform all together as part of the show


Recommended for 5 – 11 year olds
