Dress like a pirate for interactive children's concert in Buckingham

Buckingham music group will be performing Pirates! as part of the first Bucks Cultural Open Weekend

Tuesday, 20th July 2021, 2:18 pm

Children are invited to arrive dressed as a pirate for an interactive pirate story and concert for children in Buckingham on Thursday, July 22.

Pirates! is being performed in the Radcliffe Centre by the award-winning, Buckingham-based early music group Mr Simpson’s Little Consort.

Group member Sue Snell said: "The concert is a bit like Peter and the Wolf in the way the instruments are used to represent characters in the story, but there is plenty of dancing, deck scrubbing and 'work' for the child-pirates to join in with. Our performance introduces children to the real world of Tudor and 17th-century music and instruments in a fun and engaging way."
