THERE will be music workshops for people living with dementia next week at the Number 8 Arts Centre in Pershore.
People will be able to play along to African and Samba music with a range of drums and percussion instruments as part of a special Drumming Workshop from 1.30pm to 3pm on Wednesday, March 20.
It will be the last of Wychavon District Council’s workshops for the 2018-19 season but the sessions will start again next month, running until March 2020.
The sessions have been running since 2014 with a variety of music genres represented including Latin American, contemporary, classical and folk.
Jenny Davis, Wychavon’s Arts Development Officer, said: “I’m delighted these workshops and all of our musicians have committed to such an entertaining programme.
“The feedback we’ve been receiving shows the workshops have a very positive impact on people by reducing isolation, getting them involved and helping them to make new friends.”
Admission, which includes a hot drink and biscuits, is £2 per person.
