Family Festival Day

9th June

1pm – 5.30pm at Middle Street Resource Centre, Beeston, Nottingham NG9 2AR

From World Drumming workshops to singing sessions for the whole family to take part in and music to enjoy in the garden, there is something for everyone. We’ll also have a cake stall, drinks and games/activities in and around the venue.

Have a go at world drumming with Jude from BeatFeet on djembe drums and rainforest-themed props. Join Rachel in the Family Sing workshop, where all ages are welcome, from 5 – 105!

The Lullaby Bank is a group designed especially for new mothers and babies aged 0 – 9 months to address the specific post-partum experience. This includes well-being, bonding, emotional and physical concerns. Open Voices are MfE’s health initiative designed to suit adults with learning disabilities, come and try a session with Helen to see how it works! More information about the Lullaby Bank and Open Voices regular sessions can be found on the MfE website: www.music-for-everyone.org/health-well-being/
