Brighton Festival Live: The Big Song

The Big Song will be live streamed on Mon 22 May, 7.30pm

The universe sings. Planets sing. Comets sing. The earth itself rings like a bell and vibrates with sound. So, instead of the Big Bang, could there have been the Big Song?

The Big Song is a glorious celebration of singing that sweeps from science to spirituality, prehistory to protest, and reminds us of the central role of song in our identity and civilisation.

By Heathcote Williams, narrated by Roy Hutchins

Arrangement & Musical Direction by Kirsty Martin, featuring Hullabaloo Quire, Raise the Roof Community Choir and RISE Up Singing.

Filmed and edited in partnership with Brighton Metropolitan College
