Songs, rhymes and games

Saturday 17 November 2018


The course

Join in fun chorus songs and short songs, all traditional and mostly collected in Sussex, and all taught by ear. Enjoy singing games provided by the workshop leaders, and bring some of your own to teach the rest of the group. We will also be skipping with a long rope, so bring along some skipping rhymes and take part in something that always took place in Sussex on Good Friday.

The tutors

Gail Duff and Bing Lyle have been promoting folk music and traditions throughout Sussex and Kent for over 25 years. They specialise in relating their teaching to place, landscape and heritage. Recent clients include Sussex Traditions, Woodland Wildlife Hidden Histories and Kent Orchards for Everyone.

Bing and Gail not only teach, but also perform and take part in many of the customs that they introduce to others. They are both singers and musicians and Gail runs Rabble Folk Theatre, a group of actors and Morris dancers, who regularly perform at the Museum.
