Singing for the Brain is a group activity which has been carefully designed for people diagnosed with dementia and their carers, in order to receive the many health benefits that are woven into the fun of singing.  It is an enjoyable, friendly and uplifting activity giving many people a much-needed boost in confidence, all led by a trained facilitator.

We meet for light refreshments and a chat beforehand to help people relax and get to know each other.  Once the session starts, we sit in a circle and do some exercises to warm up the voice.  Then the fun really begins by singing a range of songs, either unaccompanied or sometimes using musical instruments.

Please note that no previous singing expertise is required!

Singing for the Brain sessions are free to attend and complimentary refreshments are available.
