These sessions are FREE to participants but we have to constantly fundraise to help keep them that way. Voluntary donations in our bucket collections during the sessions are gratefully received! All funds raised help us continue delivering our services locally and help to keep Mid-Week Music free and ‘drop-in’.
These sessions are friendly, informal and suitable for all ages, levels and abilities. You don’t need particular musical or singing experience to come along and join in the fun and you don’t need to book! Arrive early to get a seat though 🙂
See our Facebook for some videos of previous sessions. Different themes each week.
This year’s programme (September 2019 to June 2020) is being supported by The Sheringham Little Theatre, Awards for All (The Big Lottery) and Hayes and Storr! Thank you!
