Are you free on a Friday morning? Do you enjoy singing? Would you like to be a member of a choir?

If the answer is YES then come along and sing with Sherwood’s OPEN VOICES at St Martin’s Church, Trevose Gardens, Sherwood NG5 3FU.

Open Voices is a new Music for Everyone project. The idea is to provide especially designed singing sessions for adults with learning difficulties. Linking in with the expertise of Open Wings (based in Sherwood) and Reach (based in Southwell), MfE hopes to create a whole network of Open Voices singing groups in Nottinghamshire.

After this, there will be a fee of £2 per session, covering everything you need, plus a ‘half-time’ cup of tea or coffee + biscuits! Subsidised places are available.
