FUSED Festival: Beatbox, Rap, Perform! Workshop: Sunday 30 June 2013, 2pm

FUSED Festival

Tilbury Cruise Terminal

A three day annual festival of concerts, workshops, interactive exhibitions and activities. Events take place at the The Backstage Centre, Purfleet, Essex RM19 1RJ.

Background

A creative session exploring the basics of vocal percussion or ‘beatboxing’, as well as an opportunity to write song lyrics and rap! No experience required. Participants will perform the material they create during the evening performance, so all workshop participants should be prepared to stay for the evening performance, 6-7.30pm. Workshop participants do not need to purchase a ticket for the evening performance, as this is included in their workshop ticket. The venue for this workshop is enclosed, but is more like an outdoor space. The workshop will be standing only; and please dress sensibly in case of inclement weather. Participants in this venue should be prepared for uneven and potentially damp floors. Participants in wheelchairs can be accommodated. Hot and cold drinks, along with sweets and snacks will be available for purchase, but it is recommended that participants should bring something to eat between the workshop and the concert.

Ages 9 to 25. Tickets: £3 (no concessions) Running time: about 3 hours, including breaks.
