A Concert for Winter
A CONCERT FOR WINTER
We are delighted to announce that A Concert for Winter will once again be taking place at Shakespeare’s Globe on 12 December 2013 at 1pm
What is A Concert for Winter?
A Concert for Winter is Shakespeare’s Globe’s annual festive celebration of the past, present and future of Southwark complete with song, dance, poetry and a myriad of performance. Due to a considerable reduction in funding, this year’s project will be on a smaller scale than in previous years, but participation remains free and we are very much looking forward to joining with our community partners in a relaxed and intimate showcase of Southwark’s rich talents.
Who can take part?
We are looking for groups which represent the wonderful diversity and variety that Southwark has to offer. We would like to extend the invitation for schools, businesses and community groups to perform songs, music, poetry, storytelling and dance on the Globe Stage inspired by the theme of Regeneration and Renewal.
Each group will have the opportunity to present their own choice of performance relating to this year’s theme. Groups will be given some guidance on their performance and how to perform on the Globe’s unique stage but we are excited to hear your ideas on how to celebrate the place of Shakespeare’s Globe in our Southwark Community.
Globe Education is committed to ensuring our work is accessible to the Southwark Community and this forms a core part of the selection process. As a result we endeavour to select groups and schools that represent the whole of the borough, as well as considering whether groups and schools have applied and participated in previous years, what other project work the group or school is doing with the Globe, and guidance from our funders.
We encourage anyone to apply. We are looking for committed and enthusiastic participants and would welcome applications from groups all over the Southwark Community. We are committed to equal opportunities and welcome applications from SEN schools or groups.
How can I take part?
Please note the application deadline for the 2013 Concert for Winter has now expired and applications will no longer be accepted.
