Musical Memories is a social enterprise providing fun social singing sessions to older people in rural communities in North Yorkshire…
A Musical Memories ‘Happy Hour’ is a fun, social singing session during which we sing together some of the best known songs of the 20th century (everyone is provided with a songbook in large print for easy reading) accompanied by live piano and guitar.
Musical Memories is a not for profit Community Interest Company and is run by Ruth and Neil Hannah. Ruth and Neil have always loved playing music and singing together and started Musical Memories in order to create social singing sessions in various locations to help bring older folk together for the simple pleasure of singing, talking, remembering and enjoying each others company – not to mention the cuppa and biscuits!
Studies have shown that singing together can boost levels of immunity, reduce stress, and improve mood and memory leading to a positive impact on overall health and well-being.
A Musical Memories ‘Happy Hour’ is the perfect opportunity to get together in a social setting, have a cuppa, reminisce, make new friends and sing!
Musical Memories was ‘Highly Commended’ in the North Yorkshire 2016 Community Awards – Best Project Category.
