The performances are open to people with dementia who enjoy singing, the benefits of it, and who are still able to live at home in the community. The group also provides support for their carer(s).

Please note due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation these sessions are currently suspended and we hope that they will begin again on 15th July 2020.
