Am I about to “lose my shirt”?

Dear all,
Please don’t worry, despite the heat I don’t mean that in any kind of literal sense!
First things first, we finished our offering for the 2018/19 academic year last week, so there are no more Wednesday and Thursday sessions until September. But fear not, Summer Mondays are here. Please find the relevant details below. The title for this post refers to the fact that putting on the Summer Monday series incurs a whole different level of costs to our normal sessions, so your support – and sharing of this post/series of sessions/bringing your friends along – would be most welcome. Thanks in advance.

Summer Mondays:
The dates for Summer Mondays are as follows:
when: 9.30 to 10.30 & 10.45 to 11.45 Monday 22nd & 29th July, Monday 5th & 12th August.
where: Main Theatre, The Edge Theatre & Arts Centre, Manchester Road, Chorlton. M21 9JG (In the grounds of the Methodist Church)

buggy park: most normally Studio 2 – where our sessions are normally held – the buggy parking will be clearly signed anyway.

age range: for children from 0 to 5 years (older siblings at your discretion)

The most frequently asked question relates to the last bit. You’re very welcome to bring older siblings along. As long as they’re happy to join in with things we should be absolutely fine. The only thing I’d add would be to say that Summer Mondays are much more expensive to put on than normal sessions, so please be prepared to pay as normal – £5 for first child, £2.50 for each sibling – for all kids you bring.

I hope to see people who are around at some point over the next few weeks.
Cheers
Owen

Beer Festival and Summer Mondays

Dear all,

First things first, sorry, we’re not all off to a Beer Festival, although if you come along on Thursday you might get quite heady on gorgeous aromas! So, NB Thursday people, it’s the Beer Festival next weekend so we’ll be using the main Church on Thursday – enter the site via the pedestrian gate by the crossroads. If you drive in, park in St John’s car park across the road or on the street. I’ll get everything clearly sign-posted on the day.
The Music Makers sessions for next week will be as follows:
Monday 8th July 9.30 to 10.30, and 10.45 to 11.45, both in Studio 2 at The Edge
Wednesday 10th 9.30 to 10.30, and 10.45 to 11.45, both in Studio 2 at The Edge
Thursday 11th 9.30 to 10.30, and 10.45 to 11.45, both in the Main Church at St Clement’s

Summer Mondays are back!

There are two weeks of normal term time sessions left to go. After this we’ll be running our now famous/infamous Summer Monday Sessions. (If you’re new around here, people complained that everything just “stopped” when we get to the summer holidays. Summer Mondays are our response to this, held on four consecutive Mondays at the start of the holidays).
The details for this year are as follows:

    • times: 9.30 to 10.30 then 10.45 to 11.45
    • dates: Mondays 22nd & 29th July, 5th & 12th August
    • where: Main Theatre, The Edge Theatre & Arts Centre, Manchester Road, Chorlton. M21 9JG (In the grounds of the Methodist Church)

Age range: for children from 0 to 5 years (older siblings at your discretion)

I hope that all makes some sense and that you can get along at some point this week.
Cheers
Owen
