Beat It Percussion - Volunteers Wanted!

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.
