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.
