Hello all, I hope you don't mind me posting.

My name is Grace and I am part of the team that runs the Children in Performance workshop at the festival, along with Lizzie, Liz, Ellie, Lesley and Kerry.

You may remember last year that, along with the show involving all the children's workshops, our children were asked by Chrissie and Taffy Thomas to sing during the Salty Sea Tales 2 concert, along with The Wilsons, The Keelers and John Conolly, to name but a few, to raise money for the Lifeboat.

The CD of the concert is going to be released, with all profits going to the lifeboat, with the launch of the CD during the Taffy's Tunes and Tales session on the Saturday, which is 19:00-22:00 at the Brunswick Centre.

Chrissie has emailed Lizzie today asking if any children involved in the concert last year wouldn't mind singing at the launch. So I am putting a message out in case any of the parents of the children read the forum and would like their children to be involved. We are planning on having a rehearsal of the song after the 'Introduction to the week's Children's activites' (formerly known as Wot about the Kids?) event, which is at West Cliff School Hall on Saturday between 3-4:30pm, so will be finished at the very latest by 5. We hope that some of the children can make it!

You will also be able to find out what all the children's events have planned for the week. I know we have some very exciting things planned (involving pirates!) and having spoken to some of the leaders of the other children's workshops it sounds like there are lots of fun things planned for children and young people of all ages and abilities.

As ever our workshop is in West Cliff school Hall 3-5pm (though some days it starts at 3.15).

So this message ended up much longer than expected...it is safe to say I am excited for the week!
