Winter Lights Oct 2010

Children from St Ambrose Barlow Primary School explored the winter festivals of many cultures featured in Mandy Ross' poem, "Birmingham Winter Lights." 


This project was undertaken as part of the CBSO's education programme. Musicians, Jackie Tyler and Cath Arlidge ( ) were joined by writer, Mandy Ross, Asian musicians Shan Bansil and Mohinder Singh, visual artist Angela Connors and members of the Hindu Womens' Network to support the children in music dance and art making. The project culminated in two performances at the school and local community centre. See a video about the project at:
