We’ve got you covered for those long end of Summer days with brilliant fun days of music, crafts and learning!
Our Ukulele Summer Camp is coming up on August 9th and 10th, & our Mini Music Makers Workshops continue on Saturdays, with a special two day event coming up on August 11th & 12th! All happening right here in Buncrana!
We’re also taking part in a wonderful Heritage Week event – ‘Under The Sea’ on August 19th 3-5pm. There are wonderful props and costumes, great sets and dances, parades and music! We’re joining in to sing some great sea tunes courtesy of The Beatles – with our renditions of Octopusses Garden & Yellow Submarine! We invite all children aged 6+ to join us for an hour from 1-2pm on August 12 in The Exchange Buncrana to learn the songs, and then we’ll join the festivities on August 19th in town.
Our Ukulele Summer Camp has limited spaces remaining and is open to children (sorry adults!). We’ll meet for two hours on each of the two days of the camp, and by the end we’ll understand the basics of ukulele chords and have worked on some tunes. It’s a great starter instrument, or a brilliant way to add a second instrument and they are so affordable – available to buy from about €20!! Music for everyone!
Our Mini Music Makers events are booked out every week, and include two hours of music and crafts for ages 3-6, with snack provided. We sing and dance, play with instruments and parachutes, and take to the stage with microphones to perform for us also. Please get in touch if you’d like to join us on the last few remaining Saturdays of the month (10am – 12), or indeed for our two day workshop on 11th/12th August (10am – 12 on both days), where we’ll get to work with clay over the two days, as well as all our musical fun. Music helps so much with confidence, coordination, and collaboration. We take turns, we appreciate our friends performances and lay the foundations for musicians, singers and songwriters of the future!
