Birmingham: Darlingside

June 25, 2017 at Hare & Hounds Kings Heath in Birmingham.


Starting with their breakthrough performance at last years Cambridge Folk Festival and taking in a series of rapturously received UK shows, Darlingside are rapidly earning a reputation as the most exciting Americana band around.
Absorbing influences from 60s folk, chamber pop, bluegrass, classical music, and modern indie rock, they pay reference to giants such as CSNY and Simon and Garfunkel, yet their sound is entirely unique. Their breathtaking musical virtuosity, celestial harmonies and unforgettable songs have earned comments such as “locomotive folk-pop confections so richly executed it’s hard to tell if it’s one voice or 12″ Rolling Stone. Unmissable.

We find ourselves sitting in the third bucket, competing with every other creative and vocational option. With a decline in numbers and funding for D&T we need to understand the wider scene and prove that our lessons are relevant, vibrant, and essential for EVERY child. This presentation equips you with ideas to secure a better future for your subject at school, by linking in the key government drivers and skills that future employers value.

COSTS & BOOKINGS (Via Eventbrite): £175 +VAT

All of these events are ticket only and payable IN ADVANCE.

We use Eventbrite (as many organisations do) to automate the bookings via credit card and cheque. When you book you will receive by email a full VAT invoice/receipt.

PLEASE NOTE your booking confirmation and ticket will be emailed to both the delegate and person purchasing. If you do not receive your ticket it is most commonly caused by typing your email address incorrectly, or it is in your SPAM folder. Please check your booking carefully.

It is VERY important that your school finance manager supplies your full name and PERSONAL SCHOOL email so that we are able to send you joining instructions and further details. If we only receive the ‘school office’ email address, we have found in the past that this delays information getting to you or information is not passed on.

Once booked, if you cannot come You can send someone else, but you may not get a refund unless we can resell your ticket, but we are happy to transfer your booking if there is space on another event.
The draft programme might be subject to change. We would always endeavor to run the day as advertised.

FOOD TEACHER CENTRE is a UK based self-help group founded by Louise T Davies in 2013 and supported by experienced associates. It provides a platform to exchange best practice, give advice and support to less experienced teachers, answering practical concerns and keeping them abreast of the latest curriculum changes. A one-stop shop for like-minded professionals who seek help and information. It is free to take part and is facilitated through a closed on-line group, safeguarding the conversations of the teaching staff.

The idea of a ‘Teacher’s Centre’ is a response to the lack of local and national specialist support and diminishing Continuing Professional Development with the demise of local authority advisers ASTs, lead practitioners and supporting organisations.

The talk will be delivered by Marion Wilson who joined the Birmingham Assay Office in 2000.
