Become a Cecil Sharp House Social Sharer

We are looking for two enthusiastic digitally competent social media lovers – Social Sharers – to tweet and blog about their gig-going experiences at Cecil Sharp House throughout the season. We’re running a competition for imaginative and creative social media enthusiasts to win tickets to a selection of gigs promoted by the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS), presented in association with Songlines magazine.


What would being a Cecil Sharp House Social Sharer consist of?

You’ll get:

  • tickets to EFDSS promoted gigs* for two people (we ask that you come to at least four of the available gigs, but are happy for you to come to all!)
  • the chance to interview and engage with some of the performing artists and EFDSS staff
  • tea or Illy Coffee served with a slice of homemade cake from our new, in-house catering partner Pink at every event as well an evening meal from the new menu served in the refurbished cafe. 
  •  two issues of Songlines magazine
