Regular events for adults

The Hive is host to a number of regular events for adults. Here's a rundown of just a few:

  • Music Together for Dementia

    Fridays on 10 May, 14 June and 19 July, 11am - 12pm

    These sessions are aimed at people with dementia and their carers. When someone has dementia, music is one of the most powerful and effective ways to stimulate communication and interaction, to prompt memory and brighten mood. Music-making and singing together have many positive benefits for everyone and generally help to improve our wellbeing. The groups will run by a HCPC-registered Music Therapist who is very experienced in dementia care. Everyone is welcome to come along: no musical skill or experience is necessary to take part and it doesn’t matter if you can’t sing!

    Cost £2 (includes carer)

There is no set theme. Any piece of writing you are comfortable sharing in a group environment is welcome. All those attending will be limited to 10 minutes to read out their work in order to allow sufficient time for discussion after each piece.
