Music Tots is playing at Leominster Festival! The most fun way to play and have fun with music is to come along to Grange Court garden on Saturday at 12pm and join in. Bring your own percussion instruments or borrow ours – everyone is welcome and precisely no musical ability is required. Gersom Engels runs a weekly music class for 0-2 and 2-4 year olds in Ludlow and is coming to Leominster to brighten up even the cloudiest day. As a Bachelor of Music in Education (BMusE) and a registered Music Therapist (MA Music Therapy) – he’s also highly qualified in music and fun!
Bring a picnic blanket along to allow social distancing and we’ll see you there! Please note, to enter the garden, come through via Grange Court reception where you will need to check in with their Track and Trace system.
