Junior Jam returns

Junior Jam returns

We’re delighted to announce the return of Junior Jam – our jam-packed music sessions for children aged 4-8 led by award-winning musical five-piece Kabantu.

This Autumn sees a couple of exciting changes to Junior Jam. Sessions will now be free, and will take place at Manchester Central Library. We hope this means more children and families from right across the city will be able to take part.

Once again, Katie, Ben, Ali, Delia and Abel aka Kabantu – an ensemble of award-winning musicians and music educators known for their infectious rhythms and beautiful melodies from around the globe – will lead the sessions.

With a new and exciting theme each month – from movie music to rock ‘n’ roll – Junior Jam is a perfect opportunity for children to develop their musical skills in a fun, friendly and accessible way.

Sessions are free and will take place at the Children’s Library at Manchester Central Library on the last Saturday of each month.  

Places are limited (15 children per session) so sign up in advance to secure your spot.
