Mini-music sessions are music and movement sessions for pre-school children aged 0-4 years and their parents or carers. The sessions are great fun and are full of music-making, singing and lots of activity which will keep little ones active and entertained.

Sessions are running in term-time, and started on Sunday 29 October 2017 at The Lantern, Meadow Farm Drive, Shrewsbury. Each session is 30 minutes long and there is a choice of two timeslots: 9.30am-10am, or 10.15am-10.45am.

Anne Seymour, Project Manager at Through the Doorway to Healthy Living, said:-

“We have been running mini-music in Castlefields for over 10 years with great success, but now, thanks to a grant from The National Foundation for Youth Music we are able to expand and also run sessions in Harlescott. These sessions are sure to be popular and there is no need to book, so please come along.

“We realise that many families don’t have a lot of spare cash at the moment so we keep our prices as low as we possibly can. Each session costs just £2.50 for people living in the SY1 postcode (£3 if they don’t) and are per family not per child.  Also, there is no need to pay for a whole term up front as we are happy for people to pay as they go.”

Through the Doorway to Healthy Living runs a number of other classes throughout Shrewsbury, including Mini-Music sessions in Castlefields and exercise classes for adults such as yoga, Extend, Pilates and Tai Chi.

Details of all the activities and classes available can be found on Through the Doorway’s website at www.throughthedoorway.btck.co.uk.

Through the Doorway to Healthy Living is a voluntary organisation which aims to reduce health inequalities (by which we mean reducing the gap between the health of different groups of people such as the well-off compared to poorer communities or people with different ethnic backgrounds), by giving people the skills, opportunities and confidence to adopt healthier lifestyles. We do this by providing free or low cost practical activities that can help people to live healthier and more fulfilled lives.
