Throughout history, people have used songs to help express their ideas. Join singer-songwriter Matt Hill (Quiet Loner) for this online event full of toe-tapping tunes from times of change.

Round up the family to make some noise! Your babies and toddlers will love singing along to the likes of Bob Marley, Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan.

No instruments are required – anything you can bang, or shake will do.

This is a family-friendly activity, suitable for everyone – from toddlers to grown-ups.

No booking is required. My First Protest Song runs monthly and will be live-streamed via the PHM Facebook page @PHMMcr.
