As part of Creativity and Wellbeing Week, we are opening our regular singing session to visitors so you can come and see for yourselves the health benefits of singing together for this group of people living with Parkinsons. You are most welcome to join in with the session so you can experience it for yourselves. Members of the group will share how singing with the group affects them.

Tea and cake will be served!

Physical and vocal warm-ups are important to all singers. These strengthen muscle tone and vocal clarity to support voice projection to help communication. Deep breathing encourages improved lung capacity and postural rhythmic exercises promote mobility and stability. We sing in unaccompanied harmony for fun and to improve wellbeing and we perform regularly.

The session is aimed at Health Professionals, Medical Students, Community Musicians and people living with Parkinsons.

There is access for wheelchair users but toilets not wheelchair accessible.
