Thu Feb 14 2013Do you believe that you cannot sing? Or perhaps you have not sung for many years and wish to re-engage with your voice?
Discover Your Voice is an informal, relaxed and supportive weekend of singing workshops for adults who want to (re-) learn to use their voices on a practical level, but also discover how singing can help us connect to our emotional and spiritual centres. There is no need to be able to read music.
?The programme was spot on, excellent in every way. The choice of music was achievable and melodic with easy/few words. The teaching was first rate ? gentle, encouraging, positive and based on knowledge, experience and expertise.? Participant, Discover Your Voice 2012
All accommodation is en-suite and full board, with all workshop resources included. Some standard accommodation is available for a lower fee, please contact The Leaveners Office for more details.
This project is designed for adults with very little or no singing experience. If you?re unsure if this is the right project for you, please contact the office and speak to Lauren Parkes. This weekend is for over 18?s only.
Dates: arrivals 6pm Friday 5th April Departures 2pm Sunday 7th April Venue: the Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick, Alfreton, Derbyshire De55 1AU

Or anyone who would would be willing to do a shift in the entertainment slot.
It's 5-6pm on the 24th and 25th.
They are looking for something to lift spirits, something the guests can maybe join in with, something to listen to/watch or anything jolly or serious quality music.
It might be a great opportunity for people to practice something they want to run by an audience before a performance or something?
If you know of anyone or if you want to do it please contact Emma Anthony on 7533 541525
Thank you, and Happy Christmas!

Thu Nov 22 2012Facebook is pushing administrators to pay to promote every post/update from their page. In an attempt to make page administrators pay for "promoted posts" Facebook will now only let 7% of you receive each update we post. We simply cannot afford the money we would need to spend on each post.
Meaning that now, in order to receive all Leaveners related messages/posts, you must do the following:
1) Go to The Leaveners Facebook page.
2) Hover your mouse over where it says "LIKED" and click on "ADD TO INTERESTS LISTS" (perhaps make a Quaker list)
By doing this, you will be able to see ALL of posts about The Leaveners in your news feed!. Do this for all of the pages you want updates from.
Tue Nov 20 2012Over 18 and love to act, sill time to join us as a cast member in our Christmas Panto Project 7th-9th December in London.
