Take part in this voice workshop with Guy Dartnell and Danny Smith. In this workshop you will explore how to stretch and play with sounds in a way that is fun, challenging, moving and sometimes ridiculous. We will work with our own sounds but also share the sounds of others. You don’t have to be a great speaker or singer to do this workshop – just to have a voice.



Need to know


We’ll be in the Viewing Room. It’s next to the Library entrance on level 2, which you can reach by taking the lift or the stairs.
