Monday 21st March


From 6:30-8pm

The MIU Orchestra is a mixed-ability, mixed-instrument, mixed-age ensemble that plays its own music (MIU = Make It Up).

Join us for our first FREE workshops at The Lighthouse Music and Arts Venue in Walmer, Deal.
In these workshops we will explore ways of playing and improvising together and delve into the world of collaborative music making – ultimately writing some music.

Whether you’re used to playing in an orchestra with written scores and want to try something different or have experience playing in bands or folk clubs and would like to try something more ‘orchestral’ or have never played with anyone else before – this could be for you.

The workshops will be run by local musicians Phil Self and Stewart Hughes on the following dates:

Monday 7th March
Monday 14th March
Monday 21st March

Making noises between 6.30-8pm

All instruments welcome. Please bring your own instrument and anything you need to make a sound with it (i.e. speakers/amps etc).

Any questions – please contact Phil at
