After last year's much enjoyed event, we are thrilled again to invite you to join us in the Town Hall for our Toddler Workshop, this year led by Early Years specialist Emily Reaves- Bradley. Emily will be leading parents, carers and their toddlers in a singing, playing and movement session, incorporating songs and rhymes. This session will encourage communication through music, which is fundamental for child development.

There will be two morning sessions in the Old Court Room on Monday February 19 2024. Drinks and biscuits will be available to keep us going and there will be a hand out so you can take the songs and rhymes home with you. The registration fee is £5 per child.

Please book early to avoid disappointment.
