Join us for a relaxed and dementia-friendly one hour concert presented in an informal and friendly setting.
A relaxed performance is where the ambience of the auditorium and venue ‘rules’ are relaxed: rules such as having to keep quiet or sit still. These performances are ideal for people with learning disabilities or autism, people living with dementia, or anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed environment.
For this well-being weekend performance, BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award winner Maddie Morris will be joined by guitarist and singer George Sansome to showcase music collected in Yorkshire, exploring identity and LGBTQIA inclusivity. Expect contemporary folk music, inspired by global folk traditions.
