Singing for Memory

Friendly and supportive singing sessions for people living with dementia and their companions. Join professional musicians to sing familiar and new songs.

Each session starts with a relaxed welcome with refreshments. After warming up our voices we will sing a variety of familiar and new songs. We’ll finish with a cup of tea and a chance to chat. Sessions are free and run at The Point on the 1st and 3rd Monday of the month between 1.30-3.30pm.

Free parking is available at Doncaster Museum on Chequer Road.
