Joyful outdoor singing gathering for mums, children welcome! Sing gorgeous songs from around the world to boost your wellbeing. Join us outdoors in the stunning grounds of Mount Pleasant Ecopark to sing, connect and nourish yourself alongside your little ones. We will learn simple, beautiful songs from round the world by ear -so no singing experience necessary ! Singing is proven to boost mood and physical and emotional wellbeing, and research shows it also combats post natal depression and anxiety, and is a great way to connect. It’s been a tough year especially for mothers, and the intention of this Women’s event is to come together and replenish ourselves. We’ll also have time to talk and listen to each other and share support and solidarity as well as soaking up the magic of song, sea, sky and land in the beautiful outdoor amphitheatre.
Babies and kids are welcome – the intention is to make singing for wellbeing accessible for mums alongside your kids.
Please note you are responsible for the health and safety of any children accompanying you. We are creating a safe space for mums, babies and pre-schoolers so we ask you to be responsible for your child’s behaviour.
We expect kids and babies to make noise and do the things kids do during the session, this is totally welcome and you are free to meet their needs and enter/leave the session as necessary.
There are toilets and baby change on site, and you are welcome to change nappies during the session if you prefer.
Kids are free to play, join in, sleep or feed while you sing. Songs are aimed at mums, so bring something to entertain older ones if they’re likely to get bored – books, colouring, quiet toys. I won’t be providing toys at the moment to keep things simple with Covid cleaning.
There is no expectation for kids to stay still/quiet or join in
The ampitheatre is semi-enclosed so plenty of space to run around, and it’s right next to an open grassy orchard by the cafe if you need to take older kids out to burn off some energy.
There are grassy banks in the amphitheatre to sit and climb on
The area we are in is not fenced off and it’s a wild site so if you have mobile kids please stay with them at all times. It’s fine to leave the session and come back if you need to wander with your kids.
What to bring
A favourite quiet toy or book or a blanket to snuggle in for your little ones
Please bring appropriate clothing for random Cornish weather – warm layers, waterproofs, suncream and hats for yourself and your children- as this is an outdoor event
Something to sit on – Rug, matt/blanket or cushion. There are no chairs but grassy tiered banks to sit on.
Drinks and snacks – important to stay hydrated while sining! There’s a gorgeous cafe on site but not always open.
The amphitheatre provides a little shelter from wind, but is fully open to the Cornish weather! If it’s rainy, we will move to the covered atrium next to the Wilder Allotment Cafe – this is covered but open on 2 sides so still open air. If there’s a weather warning of high wind or very heavy rain, I will take the decision to cancel and contact you by 9am on the day of the event.
