Live Music Now’s Songs & Scones concerts are a great opportunity for older people to come together and share an enjoyable afternoon in the company of Live Music Now musicians. 

Expect songs from West End shows, well known folk tunes, popular songs and light classical music. Each informal concert will be followed by a cup of tea, scone and a chance to chat and make new friends.
