Songwriting Sprint

A fun way to connect with others in our dementia friendly community who love music and lyrics. Each month, different themes provide the stimulus to share your stories and ideas with musician Gus Harrower and the Capital Theatres Team. In a quick 45 minutes, we write group songs set to familiar melodies which are then performed by Edinburgh's dementia inclusive Forget Me Notes singers at our monthly Together in Song concerts.

This will be a hybrid event, taking place both live on Zoom, and in person in the Festival Theatre. If you'd like to attend in person, please let us know!

To book, please email Dawn Irvine.

Capital Theatres aim to be accessible to all. We are committed to making your visit to our theatres as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. All of our Front of House staff undergo disability awareness training and Dementia Friend Training and will be pleased to assist you should you require any information or help.
