Following a successful programme of Early Years music sessions, taking place here at The Bureau since April 2020, we have secured continued funding from Youth Music for our programme of Early Years music and art sessions and activities.
The fundamental aims of the project are;
• To support parents and carers in engaging with their children’s development using songs and musical activities as the catalyst.
• To provide quality musical and creative experiences and opportunities for exploration in music and arts for Early Years children with their families.
• To engage with the wellbeing of parents and families, offering a means of social support with a variety of sessions and activities both at The Bureau and outreach within the community.

Shared Sounds Sessions Spring 2024

The Shared Sounds team have been hard at work on a new Shared Sounds programme at The Bureau Centre for the Arts, now on Thursday mornings.

These new sessions will bring together the music of our old Tuesday sessions and the Bubbles and Felt art and craft activities we ran last year and will explore new Story Worlds with lots of Creative Play!

The new programme will incorporate elements of music, art and craft along with opportunities for sensory play and stories for children from 0-4 to explore new creative worlds. Come and explore with us!
