Spell Songs, the musical companion piece to The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris, was to perform in the Museum’s iconic Hintze Hall on Tuesday 2 February, with an associated livestream raising funds for their Urban Nature Project. The concert has been rescheduled due to Covid-19 restrictions and will now take place on Tuesday 27 April
The organisers told us “For the safety and wellbeing of our Spell Songs family, museum staff and the wider community, we’ve taken the difficult but necessary decision to postpone our performance at the Natural History Museum. We’d like to reassure people who have already donated that nothing else has changed – the performance will still be livestreamed around the world to raise funds for the museum’s ground-breaking new project, an ambitious undertaking to inspire a national movement to help save the nature in our towns and cities ”
With over £15,000 already donated, the organisers didn’t want to let lockdown stop them from bringing a ‘little gift of light’ to their supporters on the original concert date. So for those who have already donated, or do so in January, there will be an exclusive virtual celebration on Tuesday 2 February, to say thank you from all at Spell Songs and the Natural History Museum.
