“SongPath is an experience of integrating the science of psychotherapy with community, song, music and a magical journey through landscape. It is also tremendous fun and a truly magical day out.”

now in this meadow fair and green

Saturday 25 May 2024


Beverley, Yorkshire


SongPath heads to Beverley & East Riding Early Music Festival for the first time this year for a musical walking trail in this beautiful Yorkshire town.

SongPath Oxford 2024

to be close to the trees as they whisper together

Sunday 13 October 2024


SongPath returns to Oxford for a fourth year. This year’s walk opens the doors to Worcester College’s 26 acres of beautiful gardens, centred around the stunning lake, including rare access to the Provost’s Garden.

We’ll be joined by guest musicians and speakers, including the College’s Head Gardener Simon Bagnall, as we explore the connective power of walking, talking and music-making together.

Presented in association with Oxford International Song Festival
