  • Old Print Works, Birmingham

You are invited to a day of music, creativity, practical advice and feminine wisdom, although it is very much for all genders! The curator and main artist for the concert is Eleanor Turner and the featured artists are Caroline Trutz (above, coloratura soprano) and Sam Hickman (next pic). 

Thanks to the generosity of Camac Harps Telynau Vining's sponsorship, there is now a fantastic student rate of £30 for the full day including the concert. The other rates still offer incredible value!

£45 for the whole day per person (age 15+)
£25 for Workshop 2 and concert (age 13+) Workshop 2 is a workshop on composing, with emphasis on the harp, with Liz Johnson.
£10 concert tickets and Under 18s go free (there may well be colourful language so please use discretion when bringing children) Please ensure your place by booking in advance via Eventbrite, click here.

The Booking Form is on my website eleanorturner.biz/philo-sophia.php
