The Singing Café takes place weekly at Alfreton Library.
Organised by Without Walls, The Singing Café was founded in October 2013 with the aim of providing singing therapy to people with dementia, Alzheimer’s and other conditions.
Catherine Henderson, from The Singing Café, explained: “When you’re singing your brain is working – that’s why it’s good for people with memory issues, dementia – but also because of the types of songs we’re singing. They’re upbeat. It’s very good for our emotions.
“Singing is very, very good for you.”
Each ‘café’ starts with refreshments before the singing gets underway, with lyric displayed on a large screen for everyone to see.
The Singing Café takes place weekly at Alfreton Library, in Seven Square, on Wednesdays between 1.30pm and 2.30pm.
Organisers suggest a voluntary donation of £3 to take part in the sessions.
