Part of the Words and Music Festival :Sponsored by Suzanne Sparrow Language School.

This festival celebrates an exciting diversity of song styles and introduces new songs by Plymouth University student singer-songwriters and guest professionals. Many of the songs are new and composed and performed especially for this festival.

“Language is linked with music. At the heart of this Words and Music Festival is a re-affirming of these musical sounds and of the beauty that is our expressive English language.” Suzanne Sparrow, Honorary Doctor of Education, Plymouth University.
