Next Meeting

Our next meeting is on Thursday 11 January: learn about choral speaking

We will be joined by The Troubadours, a choral speaking group. Our very own Barbara is a member and together with other members of the group will be giving us an introduction to choral speaking. We will learn about the techniques needed to perform as part of a group narrating a poem.  The Troubadours will perform a specially selected piece for us following which there will be an opportunity for us to have a go (in groups!).

What will happen at the meeting?

The meeting starts at 7:30 – refreshments of tea, coffee, wine and cake are available when you arrive with some time to catch up with friends or get to know us if it is your first visit.

We always have a quick business meeting, led by Fiz, our president – mainly information about upcoming events so it can be useful to have your diary to hand.

Barbara will lead the main part of the meeting, starting with a quick talk, then a performance, then a chance to work in small groups with members of the Troubadours to have a go at choral speaking yourself.

The meeting will finish at about 9 p.m.

2018 Membership fees are now due – members have received more information in the newsletter. Subs of £41 can be paid at the meeting, and new members are very welcome.

I’m not a member – can I come?

Visitors are very welcome – come on your own, or with friends. Our members are very friendly and happy to chat, so you shouldn’t be left on your own! We range in age from mid-20’s to mid-80’s and come from all sorts of backgrounds, so don’t worry that you are ‘not the right type for WI’ – we are sure you are.

Our usual guest fee is £3. If you let us know you are coming we will look out for you on the door and say hello!

What should I bring with me?

It’s always useful to bring your diary, and a pen for signing up for social events!

We are continuing to collect non-perishable food items for Bradford Metropolitan food bank – a reminder of the items needed can be found on their website.
