Meet & Mingle 2018

The Land of Oak & Iron Heritage Centre at Winlaton Mill was the perfect venue for a relaxing evening of musical entertainment, with good food and time spent with friends new and old. Students from Consett Academy performed alongside musicians Sophy Ball and Ian Stephenson, we heard ‘Wider than an Oak’, the song which the students wrote as well as the orchestral piece written by students from St Thomas More Catholic School. Sophy and Ian who supported and guided the students on their writing journey then performed traditional 18th century tunes and Northumbrian pipe music from our local area.
