Scone Library Host Musical Tea for reminiscence group
Earlier this month Karen Donaldson, Volunteer Coordinator at Culture Perth & Kinross, helped arrange a Musical Tea event at Scone Library. She shares their highlights and how they organised their event below. Thanks to Karen and the rest of the team for helping to raising awareness!
How we planned our Musical Tea event
- We put up a poster in Scone Library, which was promoted in the Scone community magazine and by Culture Perth & Kinross Facebook and Twitter. Posts were then reposted and retweeted by the local community groups.
- Places on the session had to be pre-booked and attendees were asked about any food allergies and music preferences.
- We prepared a playlist of their music choices and it was played during the session.
- Karen and Margo at Scone Library helped re-arrange the furniture to make the area as covid-safe as possible. Numbers were limited to allow for distancing and couples were asked to sit together.
