Theatr Brycheiniog are very excited to begin working with Beat It Percussion a community interest group dedicated to working with older people and those living with dementia to provide community drumming sessions here at the theatre. The dementia-friendly sessions will be for older adults who are looking for something creative and social to get involved in, and will bring people together to play drums, chat and more importantly have fun. The sessions help improve coordination and give participants a sense of achievement, as well as helping to combat isolation and loneliness for those who may otherwise not have an opportunity to socialize.
In order to run such workshops we are looking for volunteers of all ages to both help run and participate in these sessions. We will be holding a volunteers information session at Theatr Brycheiniog on Monday 27th March between 1.30pm-3pm where you will have the opportunity to learn more about volunteering with Beat It and also the volunteer roles at Theatr Brycheiniog. At this information session you will also have the opportunity to sign up for our volunteers training day on Monday 3rd April.
