Musical Tea Month is here!

Share the music you love, bring back old memories and create new ones at a Musical Tea event this April to help raise awareness of the power of music for dementia.

Did someone say Bananarama Bread? We’ve giving the beloved afternoon tea a Playlist for Life makeover, encouraging everyone to come together and share in the joy of music and memories!

Musical Teas are a fun way to raise awareness of the power of personal music for those living with dementia. Over two decades of scientific research has shown that listening to a personalised playlist can improve the lives of those living with the condition. In fact, listening to music that is personally meaningful has many psychological benefits, meaning everyone can benefit from a personalised playlist. Help us raise awareness of the power of music for those living with dementia by hosting an event for Playlist for Life

Get involved

Musical Teas can be held virtually or in person – all you need is a date to get started. We can help with the rest! Register for your free Musical Tea resource pack and you’ll receive everything you need to plan your event, including tips on organising your event, arranging a virtual meet up, choosing music and more. Plus, great music-themed activities and recipes to inspire.


Awareness raising activities and fundraising are vital for us to support people living with dementia. Any donations you collect whilst enjoying your Musical Tea will go directly to our goal of sharing the power of personal music with those who could benefit most.
