choir staff festival

The Streatham Staff Choir invites you into the magnificent acoustic of the Mary Harris Chapel to hear us sing and maybe even learn some new songs with us! 

 

The Streatham Staff Choir are a Staff Life group who meet weekly on Monday lunchtimes to reap the wellbeing benefits of coming together and singing! They are led by Emma Welton and are just for fun - no previous singing experience required, and work towards optional performances. The staff choir is a relaxed and sociable group for University staff who enjoy singing and like making music with other people. Songs are taught by ear, so there’s no need to be able to read music! 


Please let us know if you're hoping to attend!

Richard has been writing music since the late 1980s having been inspired by a love of electronica including Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis and Tangerine Dream.

During this time he wrote and performed as part of the electro pop band Future Paradise with co writer Diana Maurer (nee Coatalen). This venture only saw one track , So Tired, released as a limited run CD on Vivid Records in 1999, co written with Adrian Rigby.

In 1999 Richard began working with renowned illusionist and magician Simon Drake. This included writing the music for a new section of the show at the House of Magic and the chance to work with some amazing people including the late Heathcote Williams, and other great magicians including Marc Spelman (BGT).

After a spell outside the world of music and writing, Richard is now recording under the name Richard Anthony Bean and has released a number of projects featuring largely instrumental electronic and folktronic tracks including Wonders of the World.

 And no...I don’t play Reggae

I believe in the show being more important than the single.

I play music which is rough and unpolished, never write set lists and have never played a song the same way twice.  

My guitars are one offs made in my hometown, my tambourine is taped to an old sock and my dreadlocks are natural. 

My songs are all true stories.

My name is James.

We formed in 2000 over a mutual love of sugary tea and acoustic guitar driven pop songs. Following a short ten-year hiatus where life did what it always does, we are re-embarking on our mission to make everyone's life better via the medium of nicely written and executed pop songs.

See us on the St Luke's Quad 13:15 - 14:00, and Forum South Piazza 17:00 - 17:45.

 Dakar Audio Club full length

 Genre transcending... A mix of traditional Malian Blues, Soukouss, Highlife and Reggae but also modern sounds. In a nutshell inspired by the sounds you would hear on a crackly transistor radio walking the streets of Dakar, Lagos or Banjul.

Join us for Powerpoint pandemonium! Lecture lunacy!

Come take the stage yourself or watch colleagues from various departments test their improv skills by giving a lecture to accompany a short presentation they’ve never seen before! Presentations could be on any topic, and are primarily (if not entirely) images. All tongue in cheek and not all serious. Prize for the best on-the-fly lecture, and plenty of fun for audience and competitors alike!

Fancy having a go?? We’ve already got a Prof. a Dr and PGTA up for doing these but a few more would be welcome. In order to make sure we have enough presentations, please book here if you would like to try an improv lecture - we will not have many extra so don't miss out!

 All competitors get a free drink!

 

If you have a presentation that is (or can be made) picture heavy that you think would be fun for our presenters to try and improvise, please email it to stafflife@exeter.ac.uk. 

 

Join us from 4pm in The Ram
