Inspired by the wonderful members of our Memory Spinners groups in Glasgow and Edinburgh, we have created these films of activities for you to enjoy at home or with a group of friends.
- Get singing
- Get dancing
- Get crafting - making some props
- Enjoy a drama workshop
Or, if simply listening to beautiful music is more to your taste, you can sit back, relax and enjoy A Love Song from Glasgow - a series of films featuring some of the best music from the world of opera shot in locations around the city, and sung by professional singers, members of our Connect youth company and our Community Choir.
