Tales and Tunes

Tales & Tunes, our Great Northumberland Winter Festival event is taking place on Thursday 5th December at 6pm at Headway ArtSpace.

We are hosting the final meeting of our 2 year project REAL and will be joined by our partners from Greece, Lithuania, Poland and Portugal for a week of learning and reflection using the Headway Arts methodology.

Tales & Tunes will see the sharing of results from the week’s workshops – and in true Headway Arts style this will be a beautiful creative celebration which we hope will both entertain and inform.

There’ll be songs from Seaglass Choir, music from Anth Purdy, and a Pie & Pie supper. There’ll also be a licensed bar serving alcoholic and soft drinks.

Tickets are limited. Please get in touch if you’re interested in attending: hello@headwayarts.co.uk
