The Covid-19 story in verse and singalong

Mike spotted the initial planning – apologies to Flanders & Swann – “I once had a virus, I tried to ignore it, And go like before to the pub and the shop., Let’s say we’ve a strategy, we were all for it -To kill off some old folk and then it would stop.” He encouraged home isolation and mask-wearing (“Man Up, Mask Up, Protect Another Life” ) and anticipated the Second Wave with a suitable song,. Barnard castle was very well covered – “I Don’t Beg Pardon, I’m Talking B*ll*cks from the Rose Garden” , “Dom’s Ditty”, “Stand By Your Dom”.

The Art of Comic Song Parody – interactive workshop

A lively session on the challenges of comic parody song, illustrated by reference to songs from “Brexit’s a Treat not a Trick?”.
Mike will discuss some principles of the emotional tone of the parody, as well as exploring the practical task for the parody poet. Then volunteers – or everyone – can help to create their own comic parody song with Mike’s guidance, working in small or large groups. This can be your copyright property once it is written.
