Come and make some noise

Local children and young people with disabilities or sensory impairments are invited to take part in Making Noise in the Village – and to bring their families with them.

Making Noise in the Village follows the success of the Making Noise music-making project which began in Lincolnshire last summer.

Workshops are now being run in Gainsborough by music facilitators from Lincolnshire Music Development Agency SoundLINCS – who have specific experience in working with children with special needs.

Families and carers are welcome, and funding from Lincolnshire County Council Short Breaks means that each two-hour session to cost just £3 per family.

To make it possible for youngsters with disabilities or sensory impairments to transform their own ideas and experiences into music, the workshops use a mix of activities, instruments and digital music technology.

A CD of music produced during the 11-week series of workshops will be presented to each participating family.

Making Noise in the Village workshops are being held on Saturday afternoons in Gainsborough’s Park Springs Community Centre from 1.30pm-3.30pm.

Places are limited and pre-registration with SoundLINCS is essential to ensure that all special needs and care requirements are catered for.
