Please arrive by 10.45am for a prompt start.

Join Chartwell Dutiro for an interactive live music event where you will find out more about the amazing mbira and hear songs of the Shona people of Zimbabwe. This ancient traditional instrument from South East Africa is made of hand forged iron keys that are mounted on a piece of hard wood and often decorated with shells, bottle tops and other materials. Sing-along and discover the sounds you can create on an instrument that was originally used in night time ceremonies to connect with and honour the spirits!

Tickets are £4.50 per adult, and £3 for each child. Online ticket sales are now available on the We Got Tickets website. Tickets will also be available to purchase from the Museum Welcome Desk from early April by cash or cheque made payable to ‘Plymouth City Council’. Our workshops often get booked up very quickly so please don’t delay if you want to make sure you’ve got a place! We regret that we’re unable to accept cheques for less than £10 or any card payments. All children must be accompanied by a responsible, paying adult. Please note that tickets are non-refundable.
