We run participatory music sessions and projects for older, isolated and vulnerable people in care and community settings across York. We also run a large programme of intergenerational events and activities, which bring together our beneficiaries with local schoolchildren and students. We provide free transport for anyone who needs it, and are supported by a team of dedicated volunteers.
As restrictions have eased, we're now running a full schedule of sessions across the city:
Barstow House Music Group Barstow House @ 10.30-11.45am
Acomb Singers Acomb Methodist Church @ 1.00-2.30pm
Glen Lodge Music Group Glen Lodge @ 1.15-2.30pm
Rolling Tones Tang Hall Community Centre @ 10.15-11.45am
This group is kindly supported by the Postcode Neighbourhood Trust - a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People's Postcode Lottery.
Marjorie Waite Court Marjorie Waite Court - Sessions are held every other Tuesday @ 2pm
