The Well-being Choir will be hosted on Tuesday mornings running weekly for 28 weeks, with each free session lasting two hours. The sessions are open to everyone over the age of 18 and all levels and abilities are very much welcome to attend and have a great time. At the end of the 28 weeks we hope that the choir will put on a concert at The Atkinson alongside the Southport Festival in a huge celebration of the arts. This fantastic project was inspired by Matt Dodd as part of The Atkinson Development Trust’s ‘Bright Spark’ initiative which invites staff to submit their ideas for audience-focused activities. A recent Twitter poll affirmed that this is a very welcome initiative with an overwhelmingly positive response, and such a project would provide a great dimension to The Atkinson's repertoire of events for the community.
