Join the pop-up catch club for an evening of community singing, mirth, and merriment. No singing experience necessary! In the 16th and 17th centuries, rounds and catches (songs like ‘London’s Burning’), were not just children’s songs, but a popular form of social recreation for adults, especially among the working classes.
Combining rhyme and reason, sense and nonsense, the songs expressed the joys of drink, song, and good fellowship. By creating harmony out of short and simple melodies they were also quick and easy for anyone to pick up and join in.
Come along to learn some catch-songs, make new acquaintances, and experience some early modern fun! All ages are welcome, but under-16's must be accompanied by an adult.
