Further information:

The Cambridge Singing for Breathing group has been set up for people with chronic lung health problems such as COPD, IPF, and asthma. The group began in May 2016 and has proved to be very popular, with new members continuing to join week by week. Members report that the breath and voice exercises have made a difference to their breathing and that they love the singing and the social aspect of the group. You can see a video about the group at

Group leader Kay Barrett is a trained British Lung Foundation Singing for Lung Health leader and receives ongoing mentoring and support from BLF Singing for Lung Health experts.

Since October 2016 the Cambridge Singing for Breathing group has been a project of Cambridge community music charity Talking in Tune. Members currently pay a suggested weekly donation of £3.50, or whatever they can afford. No-one is excluded on grounds of cost. If you think this group might be for you, please contact Kay for more information and directions to the venue.
