Three people smiling with their arms around each other and guitars.

Come and join members of the joyful Dovetail Orchestra to learn to play some beautiful songs from around the world.

On offer will be workshops on Bangladeshi and Turkish singing, fun drum beats and guitar chords. Bring your own instrument, your voice, or just come and pick up a drum or a guitar. We’ll make our own song together, inspired by traditional sounds from the cultures in the room.

All ages, musical backgrounds and experiences welcome!
