Go Back
Junior Jam returns

Junior Jam – our jam-packed music sessions for children aged 4-8 – is back this autumn with 3 new exciting themes!

Junior Jam will continue to run in the Children’s Library at Manchester Central Library for free so that more children and families from right across the city can take part.

Katie, Ben, Ali, Delia and Abel aka Kabantu will lead two sessions, and we’re excited to have Noisy Toys back for the final session of the year for more music making with electronic junk!

With an exciting theme each month, help your little ones develop their musical skills in a fun, friendly and accessible way.

Places are limited (20 children per session) so sign up in advance to secure your spot.
