Celebrate BBC Music Day in style!

BBC Music Day is on 26 September and this year it will be highlighting the power of music to help dementia. 

Playlist for Life is joining in and we are inviting all our Help Points and supporters (old and new) to get involved by hosting a Musical Tea.

The Musical Tea was invented by the first ever Playlist for Life Help Point in St Andrews Church, Carluke. It is a way to bring people together to enjoy musical memories, chat over cake and introduce people to the power of playlists.  

"We host a 'Musical Tea' where people can come with their family members to chat, laugh, dance, listen to music -and sample home-baking from our 'LP-cake stands'. It's been a wonderful addition to our services and everyone always has a lot of fun!"
Rev Helen Jamieson - Playlist for Life Help Point Leader, St Andrews Church, Carluke

Your free Musical Tea hosting-pack includes:

  • Ideas for musical games and activities to make your Tea go with a swing.
  • Instructions on how to build your own LP-cake stand - as invented by Jennifer Johnston at the first Help Point in Carluke. 
  • A donation box if you want to use your Musical Tea to raise funds for the work of Playlist for Life.

We will also have lots of online resources available to download to make your day extra special, and if you're on Facebook, why not join our Facebook group where you can share recipes and activity ideas with the rest of the Playlist for Life community?

The team at Playlist for Life HQ will be holding our Musical Tea on Thursday, 26th September, 2019, but you can host yours whenever you like.
