Music Café for People with Dementia (Manchester Camerata)
Our Music Cafés are for people living with dementia and for family carers. We make music, have fun together, meet new friends and learn how music can help you reconnect to your loved ones.
They're run by our professional, specially-trained musicians and music therapists at the orchestra's base in Gorton Monastery.
