Music and Mindfulness

Hull Urban Opera Collective and Hull Minster are really excited to welcome back soprano Poppy Shotts to sing Erik Satie's exquisite one-woman opera, "Socrates". In order to get you in the mood and enable you to experience this subtle and nuanced opera mindfully, we're working with mindfulness expert Jim Rogers to create a new way to experience opera incorporating, meditation, symbols, sounds and smells.

Seated in a circle, you'll experience with all your senses, a woman's journey from turmoil to tranquility.

This peaceful late performance lasts approximately one hour and is suitable for the whole family.

Sea Fever - NAPA VIP's

SEA FEVER

Presented by NAPA VIPs

Hull Minster Friday 19th July at 1pm

The Visually Impaired Performers and friends from Northern Academy of Performing Arts have produced a variety of shows over the last five years.  They were part of the 2017 City of Culture Community Arts project, with Do You See What I Mean, which was written and devised by members of the group.

Sea Fever is their latest offering and fuses together spoken word, music and song.  It’s a mixture of classic and modern material with additional pieces written by members of the company.  The theme was chosen because of the links to Hull’s sea faring tradition that many of the company members have. 

The VIPs are fortunate to be joined in the performance by Kenneth and Jean Shakesby.  Jean is one of the original Lil’s lasses and in 1968 marched with Lil Bilocca in her campaign to improve working conditions for Hull trawler men.  Ken is an ex trawler skipper who was on the trawler, Kingston Garnet, when the Ross Cleveland was lost.  Ken will be reading extracts from his new book, From Schooldays to the Arctic Circle and Beyond.

The event, which is primarily funded by Macmillan Cancer Support, has been organised by healthcare leaders across Hull & East Riding and will help health professionals and members of the public find out more about planning for end of life.

It is hoped that the the event will provide support, while changing death from a taboo subject to something we are all comfortable thinking and talking about.

Bev Clark, Operations Manager for Palliative and End of Life Care Services at CHCP explained “We want to show people that talking about death may seem scary but it’s really important to understand that people have choices available to them that can take into account their cultural, religious and personal beliefs.”

The event is FREE to attend and anyone can drop in throughout the day. Speakers have yet to be announced but it promises to be an informative and interesting event.

Our ‘Death Café’ will be open for people to come and talk about life, death, emotions and experiences over a cup of tea and a slice of cake.

There will also be a number of crafting activities to create memories for others to treasure after death and stalls from over 50 support groups and organisations who can help with everything ranging from bereavement support to financial advice.
