Details of the Feb 2020 "Concert for Carers" from MiHC and MPCFThis is a relaxed concert aimed at parents and carers of children & young people with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) in Manchester.

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.

How to book

Booking is essential.
