in partnership with Manisamitra
Free to York residents with a valid YorkCard and students (York universities and colleges) with a student ID card.
As part of York Residents Weekend, musicians from Manasamitra will set up their Lullaby Booth at the National Centre for Early Music. The Lullaby Booth is a space into which people of all ages are warmly welcomed, to share childhood songs and stories and to learn new lullabies from other cultures. During the day, there will be 3 flexible drop-in sessions (starting at 11am, 1pm and 3pm) which will last approximately 1 hour each.
The lullabies and stories collected in the Lullaby Booth may be featured in a show by Manasamitra at NCEM in May 2019, so if you have a great one to share do come along during Residents Weekend!
