Pay What You Decide

Welcome to your voice: a singing workshop open to all

Join Dominie Hooper for a fun, informative and eye-opening workshop about the human voice.
Learn how the voice actually works, and how you can access different tones and sounds and find the voice that feels like you.
The workshop will consist of games, a vocal warm up, a whole lot of interesting knowledge on the larynx, and some singing!
Come prepared to make some noise, and explore your larynx through play-sounds.
This will be a safe and encouraging space open to all abilities, and no-one will be expected to sing solo unless they feel comfortable to.

Pay What You Decide!

This is a Pay What You Decide workshop which means you choose what the show is worth to you! You can decide what you would like to pay now by adding a workshop place with a £ value to your basket, or you can pay after you have attended the  workshop at Barbican Theatre.
Looking around at other events going on in the city, we estimate that 1 place similar workshops would cost £15.
There is no ‘right’ answer, we are not attempting to lead you to a specific figure.
You can pay the suggested value or you can pay more or less than the suggested value, including £0, for your place.

Barbican Theatre is a safe space

Safe to be who you are, regardless of race, class, religion, country of origin, immigration status, (dis)ability, age, gender, identity, or sexual orientation.

Covid 19 Safety 
The health, safety and comfort of our audiences, colleagues and performers are very important to us.

Before you arrive

We have a number of measures in place to ensure your comfort and safety.
Enhanced hygiene procedures are in place which include thorough cleans between performances and our ReBels training sessions. We have increased the circulation of fresh air throughout the building so it might be cooler than you are used to. You may want to bring an extra layer, just in case. Hand sanitising stations are positioned throughout the public spaces for audience members and ReBels training members to use and we ask that you do so frequently.
We continue to monitor the latest guidance from the UK Government and the team here will continue to wear face coverings in all areas of the theatre.

When you arrive

Whilst we encourage members of the audience to continue to wear a mask we understand that more and more people are making the decision not to so we would like audiences to be aware that people sitting around them may not wear a mask throughout. If you are concerned about this please get in contact with our Audience Experience Manager Robyn who can discus options for seating that will help you feel more safe.
The Barbican team will all wear face coverings / shields (unless medically exempt) and are also regularly lateral flow tested. This includes our practitioners, core team, the team front of house and back stage.

Social Distancing

Barbican Theatre largely programmes one night performances, with a capacity of either 110 or 140. Due to this programming model at present we are unable to offer socially distanced performances. Please get in contact if you would like to discus seating options for any upcoming events and where possible we will find you an area in the auditorium with the most distance for other audience members.
