Youth event

Drop in

Saturday 21 May



Experiment with your voice, learn a range of vocal techniques and record a cappella tracks in these workshops for young people aged 14-19

We’re inviting visitors to London to take a Wellcome Detour and add Wellcome Collection to their itinerary.


Your voice is a powerful instrument. You use it every single day, but do you know how to look after it? Or to get the best out of it?

We offer a range of free, bookable, cross-curricular study days for students aged 14-19.

Do you have an idea for a small participatory event that you would like to hold in our Reading Room?
