Singing on the Green

The Garden Classroom connects urban children with nature

The Garden Classroom connects urban children with nature

An ensemble of our regular Vox Voices singers will be performing at The Garden Classroom’s Mildmay Festival of Nature on Newington Green on Saturday 6th May at 1pm.  

The Garden Classroom is a great local organisation that aims to connect urban children and families with nature. The Mildmay Festival of Nature will be Islington’s first nature festival, celebrating all that is great about Mildmay’s green spaces with live music, talks and workshops, food & drink and children’s nature activities with a chance to connect with a collection of London’s nature providers including London Wildlife Trust, Green Wood Workers, and LBI’s Greenspace team.

The Vox Voices performance will be a small handful of songs we have been workshopping in our regular sessions including Down in the River to Pray and an a cappella arrangementby Tara of Bill Withers’ Ain’t No Sunshine.  There will also be a free for all Tots Tunes session on the same day - Saturday 6th May - on the green at 11am.

As well as live music there will be outdoor yoga, a tractor visit, tree surgery demonstrations, Morris dancing, and a visit from some Freightliners Farm animals.

Come along for a day out in the green spaces of our neighbourhood and to see what Vox Voices is all about. Don’t forget to come and say hello!
