Jackdaws Songbirds

Songbirds sessions restart on Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th January

Jackdaws Songbirds

Jackdaws Songbirds are a friendly, informal singing group for adults (But you are most welcome to bring your babies, Pre-schoolers and toddlers to the Tuesday session – they can play with ours!) We meet weekly during term time to sing together in a relaxed environment. There are no auditions, and no previous singing or music experience is required! Songs are taught by ear. Music notation is available to those who read, but reading isn’t necessary. Our aim is to enjoy singing together in harmony and to explore different types of music: traditional, modern and world.

The group meets on Tuesdays from 1.30pm – 2.45pm at St Catharine’s church hall, Park Road, Frome. We sing for an hour, and provide toys for the toddlers to play with. We don’t expect pre-schoolers to be quiet, and we don’t expect full attention from parents! In a typical session, children may play on their own for a bit, require some attention for a bit, and may even listen in now and then. At 2.30pm the toys are cleared away and we sing a few songs with the children.

There is also an evening group on Wednesdays from 7.40pm – 9.10pm. This is very similar to the afternoon group, minus the babies and toddlers. This group meets at St John’s school, Christchurch Street East.

For both groups, there is a suggested donation of £5 for each session you attend or £4 for a half term block. So why not come along and have a go?

For more information, please phone Songbirds Leader Caroline Radcliffe on 01373 474200, email songbirds@jackdaws.org or just drop in and see what you think. First session is free, so you have nothing to lose!
