Event Information

Duration: 2 hours 0 minutes

After a ground-breaking theatre project about the Mother and Baby Homes of Herefordshire transferred to the Black Country, Feral Productions are further developing the work to uncover the stories of the Homes in neighbouring Worcestershire.

Hush Now gives voice to the unmarried mothers who were silenced and hidden away in Homes across the UK for over a hundred years. The project tells the untold stories of resilience and brings to light the tales of courage, determination, strength and unity that brought women together from different walks of life.

Join Hush Now composer/musician Kitty McDonald for this FREE songwriting workshop which will explore the art of site-responsive creative writing through the stories of local Mother and Baby Homes.

The Hush Now songwriting workshop will be an informal creative session involving singing, music and song. Time will be taken to respond musically to the stories of the unmarried mothers whose voices were silenced and using material arising out of the creative writing session participants then the group will work together to create a brand new song for the Mother and Baby Homes of Worcestershire.

No experience is needed. This fun workshop is open to everyone aged 18+ and is suitable for all levels, from beginners to those with more experience.
