Giufà Project: GYO1 Workshops

Come and take part in a fun, creative two day workshop and a celebratory performance in Battle as part of this summer’s Giufà Project.

Glyndebourne is working together with Opera Circus, Battle Festival and Crisis Classroom to create The Giufà Project, and we would love you to be part of it.

If you are aged between 9 and 13 and love singing, drama, movement and performance you are invited to join us for something very special at the end of the summer holidays. An exciting team of international artists from a range of different disciplines will be working with young people from across Europe and beyond to create and share new art on the theme of migration.

Sessions will take place at Battle Abbey School:
Wednesday 29 August: 10.00am – 6.00pm
Thursday 30 August: 10.00am – 6.00pm
There will be an open performance for family and friends at 3.30pm on Thursday 30 August.
