Chris Sharkey’s Make it/Break it - workshop

LONDON Southbank Centre / The Clore Ballroom
Belvedere Road


We are looking for over 100 amateur musicians of all abilities to take part in this all-day workshop with guitarist Chris Sharkey (trioVD, Acoustic Ladyland, Shiver), creating a new piece which will be premiered at Southbank Centre's Clore Ballroom at 6.30pm.

This piece will play around with improvisation and will be an opportunity to experiment with a variety of methods of music-making and play with a large ensemble of diverse musicians and instruments.

We have had a very positive response to our call-out for musicians. Places are now limited and we are particularly looking for instrumentalists who play strings, wind, brass and percussive instruments. (aged 15+)

Pre-booking is essential. Please contact to book and for more information.

This workshop was previously advertised as taking place in the Level 5 function room, but will now take place in the Clore Ballroom ahead of the performance.

We’re delighted to bring you fantastic free performances and workshops right across the capital all Festival long. The work of our charity, Serious Trust, exists to ensure music is accessible for all. If you'd like to support us in our work with young participants and artists, text JAZZ11 £5 to 70070 to donate.
