Selected photos from Together to the Workhouse Door, an original site-specific project in collaboration with Sinfonia Viva, the Writers’ Centre Norwich and Breckland Council, which took place in June at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse.

“I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed last night – it was a triumph in every way. Just brilliant. It’s been very special to be part of this fantastic partnership and project!”
Mary Muir – Arts Officer, Norfolk County Council

“What a fantastic project! Wonderful singing from the children and soloists and it was fabulous to work with David and the almighty James…. The music was, as always, a joy and such a treat for us all. Judging from the reactions I saw in the audience and also on stage, it was in every way a total success.”
Deirdre Bencsik – Cellist, Sinfonia Viva

Not only did the children work hard to achieve such an amazing performance but they were inspired and showed great enjoyment throughout the contact days. It has been a real delight to welcome the professional musicians into Cawston Primary to work with our staff and pupils. We were all impressed with the concert, especially the families, and it was great to see all our pupils rise to the challenge of what has been an ambitious and rewarding musical production.It will be an experience that we will all remember with pride.”
Kay Swann – Headteacher, Cawston Primary Academy
