Come Singing groups offer a welcome break from the isolation which dementia often brings. There are great songs of every sort – favourites from the musicals, standards, folk and traditional – and therapeutic musical activities to stimulate and tease the brain into action.

The emphasis is on enjoying yourself – no echoes of primary school or hymn practice! – and the pleasure of singing in a group with focus is a great boost to self-confidence and well-being!

These groups are not just for people with dementia: family members and carers are very welcome, and informed volunteer support ensures an easy, safe environment.

This group runs on the 4th Friday of the month
