Join us at Islington Museum for an exciting new singing project

Venue: Islington Museum
Dates: Tuesdays: 26 May, 2, 9 & 30 June. Mondays: 15 & 15 & 22 June. 
Times: 2-4.30pm

As part of Islington's Word Festival 2015, we are inviting you to take part in this really fun project especially for people who have just been diagnosed with early stage Dementia.

Islington Museum is working with musician Julian West to bring to life some of the fantastic artefacts in our collection. Islington has a long history of famous singers and songs. It was home to many influential music-hall all venues including Sadler's Wells and Collins's Music Hall.

In this project we will be singing some music-hall songs, teaching each other tunes we know, and even writing some new words together as a group. Whether you're a experienced singer or new to the idea, it will be a very relaxed group with an emphasis on enjoyment, self-expression and taking part.

We will be running 6 sessions where you can join us, meet other people and enjoy singing with others.

If you are interested in joining the group please contact Kara Jarrold at Sense on: 020 7014 9365 / 07771 845570 or e-mail: kara.jarrold@sense.org.uk
