Concert for Carers – Music in Hospitals & Care – Mat Walklate Duo
February 11 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm| Free
We know that, as carers, parents may have little or no access to live music. With the help of Music in Hospitals & Care (MiHC), we aim to create moments and memories of joy, relaxation and engagement together with the wonderful, friendly musicians and fellow parent-carers.
The session will be provided free of charge and will include nibbles & refreshments. There will also be an opportunity to chat with some of our SEND partners before or after the performance.

Our guest performer for the day will be the Matt Walklate Duo.
