Meets on Monday mornings, every fortnight, at the Poppy and Pint and aims to provide a dementia-friendly and inclusive space for people to come along and enjoy live music based on the five principles of Well Being. Their latest schedule can be found via this link.

The cafe is about avoiding labels and bring people together with a wide variety of mental health conditions, with those who are socially isolated or who just want to share a cup of coffee and have a song!  No charge is made to attend and refreshments are provided, though we welcome donations to ensure the cafe can continue.

The sessions are led by specially trained musicians who are supported by a team of volunteers.  The cafe is run by musicworks and sponsored by the Trent Bridge Community Trust.

Sessions take place on a Monday morning between 10.30 and 12noon on a fortnightly basis (not bank holidays). Contact us for details of the next one - email on [email protected] or phone on 0115 9145879.

Move & Mingle


11.00am Tuesday mornings from the Poppy & Pint, Pierrepont Road

If you’d like to take part, all you have to do is meet us on the Poppy & Pint car park 10 minutes before the start of the walk, so that one of our trained walk leaders can take your details. If you want to know more before you start, just get in touch:
