Thanks to a grant from Leeds Community Foundation through Helping Hand Fund, we ran a pilot project of intergenerational singing sessions in 3 different venues in Leeds to explore the successful running of intergenerational sessions in each venue. We hope that they will continue in the autumn term so keep an eye on our website and social media for more information!
The project launched in May 2019 at Kirkstall Abbey Visitor's Centre with a special session for Queen Victoria's 200th birthday! It was a great success and we loved seeing so many people of all ages singing together.
Subject to funding, we are hoping to continue the sessions in September at 21 Co. in Headingley on Wednesdays, 10.30-11.45am and at Hawksworth Wood Children's Centre (invitation only). We have an information sharing day / celebration planned for the autumn. Watch this space for more information!
