This website is about words. Words that are read and words that are sung.
If you are a reader, you will be interested to know more about “The Lit Wagon”. This is a cosy place (my friendly camper van) where you can come and get some guidance on what to read next. You can still catch up with us in 2013 by coming along to the Ilkley Literature Festival on 5 and 6 October. Book your ticket via the festival website!
If you want to encourage others to read, you might be interested to know more about shared reading groups. People from all sorts of groups have been reading together with a
facilitator – sharing what the story means to them and finding that they can have an opinion about the lives we read about. We are currently working with Foundation UK to run groups for specific client groups. In the past we have worked with organisations such as the Ann Frank Trust and The Alzheimer’s Society in Lancashire.
Singing connects us in so many ways and is incredibly good for us! To find out more about singing groups and one to one support with the voice, follow these links:
Dementia Singing groups in East Lancashire (run in conjunction with Secret Singers, Crossroads Care and REAL in Rossendale) www.eastlancsdementia.org/local-services/
Singing for the Soul – an interfaith choir for people of all faiths or none that meets weekly in Burnley www.singingforthesoul.net
The Curious Choir – a weekly group for people who are curious about their voice or about singing in harmony with others. The group meets on Monday evenings at La Dolce Vita on Albert Road, Colne. So if you are curious to know what your voice sounds like after all these years or have been inspired by Gareth Malone to come together with others to sing, these sessions might be for you. There will be no auditions and no necessity to read music, as we will be learning “by ear”. Here is our facebook page.
Please contact us if you would like to come along to any of the above or if you would like one to one support to help to find your voice, to reduce snoring or to sing more beautifully.
