About the Event

Join Liz and Emily for this meadow stroll-and-sing event in high summer. They will be bringing their compositions inspired by nature and as the group moves around the meadow they will lead their songs in different spots in the field, in harmony with the river, the sky and the meadows. They'll teach all parts by ear using simple lyrics and building up parts depending on different abilities so there's something for everyone, whatever your experience. All welcome. 

What to bring:

We will run in ALL weathers so do come prepared with suitable clothing, insect repellant, water bottles, kagoul etc. Perhaps a mat or coat to sit on for refreshments as there are no benches. Bring a hot drink or snack or whatever you fancy for the break. Please come prepared for standing to sing and short walks inbetween.

Liz has run groups, choirs, workshops and performances since the 1980's. She has been a member of the Natural Voice Network since it's inception. Her work is embedded in the ethos that everyone has the right to sing. She says her song-writing came from " my need for conviviality and to savour the natural world."

They are delighted to be able to offer this event and lead you together for the first time.

Meeting place:

We will meet at the curved silver kissing gate which leads to the Nature Reserve half way down the southern section of Meadow Lane.

what three words are quite appropriate.

If coming from the West across Donnington Bridge/Weirs Lane, take the first right after you have crossed the river to go down Meadow Lane. The City of Oxford Rowing Club is on the corner of Donnington Bridge and Meadow Lane. Bridge Stores is also on the corner. Go past the rowing club gateway and on until the road almost runs out. The gateway for the reserve is on your right.

Transport:

 There is very little parking by the gate as it's a residents street but The Redbridge Park and Ride is also only a short walk from the site; from the P&R walk along Abingdon Road towards Oxford, and take a right down Donnington Bridge/Weirs Lane. Alternatively you could drive to Iffley Village, pull in to the other end of Meadow Lane off Church Way, or go further along up to the Church and take a pleasant stroll back through the village. 

Any busses on Iffley Road or Abingdon road will get you near. See you there!
