Jubilee Journeys joy – with music, songs and conversation
WGN members and String of Hearts participants enjoyed an uplifting afternoon at the Jubilee Journeys show. It was the finale of a project funded by the Arts Council’s Let’s Create Jubilee Fund by Forever Manchester. The Fund ensured that creativity played an important role in community celebrations for Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
String of Hearts musicians and participants sang hits from across the decades. They also performed new songs, composed together during Jubilee Journeys workshops – and led a fun sing-a-long.
Also from String of Hearts, Roy read a poem he’d written specially for the show. Inspired by Virginia Wade’s timely triumph at Wimbledon 1977 (which coincided with the Silver Jubilee celebrations).
Guests also enjoyed an afternoon tea fit for a Queen, whilst listening to reminiscence podcast interviews featuring WGN members. Jubilee Journeys was a memorable day of music, memories and conversation.
