A day of west gallery music and carols for singers and instrumentalists starting at 10.00 am and using the beautiful, warm, historic church of St Nicolas.

This is the sixth of our biennial workshops in and around Birmingham, which attract people from many places, both far and wide. Music is taken from locally sourced books and manuscripts as well as 'west gallery favourites', and is music which has become part of a repertoire common to modern west gallery quires and bands.
