Following our Family event, our performers will present the same 40 minute programme of music in a free relaxed performance for anyone to pop in and enjoy.

The performance offers a laid-back approach to noises and movement from the audience, giving everyone permission to relax and respond naturally. You're free to walk in and out and the performance is completely free, with the opportunity to pay as you feel at the end.
