SongPath is a fantastic initiative, co-founded by contralto and former Oxford Lieder Young Artist Jess Dandy, designed to provide participants with nourishing ways of connecting through walking, talking and music-making. Joined by members of the Botanic Garden team and fellow Festival musicians, Jess leads us around the Botanic Garden, in conversation, song and observation, as the wandering of the legs gives rise to the wandering of the mind...

£5 from every ticket goes to the charity Oxfordshire Mind.


This event is an in-person event only, which will last approximately 1 hour 30 minutes.
