Wednesday, 10 July


10:00 am


Meet at Deal Pier entrance

Join Helen, Lizzie and members of ‘Deal With It’ for a beach clean and then an interactive music workshop at the Astor involving plastic beach debris and an inspiring round-table discussion including local litter heroes Helen Charlton and Steve Wakeford exploring the links between music-making, community action and the environment. No experience needed!

All welcome – if you play an instrument, bring it along! Otherwise, come and try something new.

Please note that the event will start with a beach clean and then we will walk to the Astor Theatre for coffee, the music workshop and discussion. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear. If you prefer not to come to the beach clean, please come to the Astor at 11am. The event will end at approximately 1pm.

Supported by the Royal Academy of Music
