Heron Music Cafe

Heron Music Well Being Cafe meets two-weekly at the Poppy and Pint. 

Sessions take place on the first & third Monday mornings between 10.30 and 12 noon (not bank holidays) at the Poppy and Pint.  They aim 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. The latest schedule can be found by clicking here.  Contact us for details of the next one - email on [email protected] or phone on 0115 9145879.

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.
