Enjoy free music and dance this Sunday at historic St Mary's Guildhall
Tuesday 3 July 2012
Those interested in learning some Tudor dance moves should come and visit St. Mary's Guildhall in Bayley Lane this Sunday, where the historic rooms will be alive with the sights and sounds of the past.
Tudor dance specialists, Renaissance Footnotes, will be offering free performances and join-in sessions between 11am and 3pm, with period musicians scattered through the medieval building to add to the special atmosphere. At 6pm, there will be a ticketed concert, with early music ensembles from across Coventry and Warwickshire coming together in a rare early music treat for the city.
Manager of St Mary's Guildhall, Marcus Lynch, said: "This event will be a real bonus for visitors to the Guildhall this weekend, and is a must for fans of early music. The Tudor period fits right in with what children are learning at school, so it should be a real family experience, whilst also bringing the Guildhall's magnificent rooms to life. Visitors will really get a feel for how the wealthy partied around 500 years ago, when the Guildhall was regularly used to entertain royalty.
St Mary's Guildhall will be open free to visitors from 10am to 4pm on Sunday, and there will also be experienced guides on hand to reveal the Guildhall's secrets."
Tickets for the evening concert can be bought on the door, or booked in advance from Coventry Performing Arts Service on 024 7678 8575 or email@example.com. Adult tickets £3.50 and Children £1
