Shake Rattle & Roll

After a bit of a break, we’re delighted to welcome back Shake Rattle & Roll – our fun and interactive music sessions for babies and toddlers…

Whether you’re a Shake Rattle & Roll regular, or have never been before, join us to explore instruments, create sounds, sing songs, dance, move, socialise and make a big noise!

Aimed at children aged 0-4, Shake Rattle & Roll is a great activity for families to share – all in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.

Shake Rattle & Roll is still completely free to attend, and will be led by Beth Bishop – an experienced music leader who specialises in working with Early Years.
