Brummie Composer Bobbie-Jane Gardner has been collaborating with communities from the four wards of Birmingham's Selly Oak district.

Her collaborators are: Creative Writers from P-Cafe Stirchley, Billesley Year 5 Primary School students, University of Birmingham School students and Brandwood Elder’s Lunch group with the assistance of composer Roché van Tiddens.

Inspired by the stories and field recordings collected by each community group from their ward, Bobbie-Jane has co-created 4 short pieces, communicating impressions of each locality in which her collaborators either study, live, work or create.

Each community group has been inspired by the natural sounds found in Selly Oak District: canals, lakes, bird songs yet each piece offers a different perspective, be it tipsy student weekends in Selly Oak ward, the legacy of Cadbury’s cocoa innovations in Bournville ward, the darker shades of life in Brandwood ward and finally a joyful, community piece communicated in Billesley Ward.

Sweet Selly will take place at Bournville Junior School on Friday 23rd June at 6pm.

Join us for a little tea party including performances from local poets from P-Cafe’s Crunch Creative Writing group and 4 short works including performances from the community and on the local carillon (played by Trevor Workman), and a quintet comprising soprano sax, clarinet, guitar, drums and double bass.
