News from Breckland - Free music workshops launched across Breckland


Celebrated musicians Joe Mace and Carl Cole, have announced a new series of music workshops for the Silver Social arts programme. They have previously developed workshops and performed for Creative Arts East, Snape Maltings, Community Music East, The Garage and Aldeburgh Music.


“The workshops are free to and will involve singing, drumming, exploring unusual instruments, writing songs and playing music influenced by different cultures, all with an emphasis on fun and enjoyment,” commented a Silver Social spokesperson. “No prior musical experience is necessary; musicians and non-musicians alike are welcome. The sessions are about ‘playing’ with music, having fun and meeting new people, all fuelled with tea and cake!”


The free workshops start on 12 November at Dereham Meeting Point on St Withburga Lane (10am–11.30am), followed that afternoon from 2 pm at Harling Old School Hall. The show will also be coming to Watton Christian Community Centre (13 November, 2–3.30pm), Attleborough Methodist Church (14 November, 10am) and Swaffham Community Centre (14 November, from 2pm).


The workshops are part of the Silver Social Programme, an exciting programme of daytime arts events in the heart of Norfolk, promoting engagement and participation among older residents in rural communities. Managed by Breckland Council and with funding from the National Lottery Arts Council, Silver Social brings 'something a little different' to daily life in rural Breckland - in the form of creative workshops and live performances.

My name is Paul Ilett and I’m currently working with the NHS in Norfolk and Waveney on a number of projects.


A review of mental health services is underway that will inform the development of a 10 year mental health strategy. I am supporting an engagement programme so residents and service users can help us ensure mental health services across the area are delivered in ways that meet future needs. Hundreds of people have already completed an online survey to share their thoughts, and this survey can be found here:


We have also arranged a number of public events which I hope you will help us to promote. These are as follows:


2pm-4.30pm on Wednesday 7 November at the Orbis Centre in Lowestoft


10am-12.30pm on Wednesday 14 November at King's Lynn Town Hall


6pm-8.30pm on Monday 19 November at The Assembly House, Theatre Street, Norwich NR2 1RQ


Please may I ask you share information about the online survey and the events with your own local residents and contacts, and please let me know if you have any questions.


Kind regards, Paul
