Transforming Communities

Songs and Scones – Get Involved!

Live Music Now’s ‘Songs & Scones’ brings together isolated older members of the community for uplifting afternoons of live music, tea, cakes and conversation. 

Live Music Now is looking to expand its Songs & Scones programme across the UK. Monthly concerts run for at least a year in each area, enabling participants to make new friends within their local community, explore their own creativity and connect better with local services. 

We know that engaging in live music can be life-affirming, stimulating and morale boosting, having a lasting positive impact on anxiety, depression and feelings of loneliness.  

Funds raised help us to invite more older people who are experiencing loneliness to join our musicians and meet others in their community on a regular basis, forming long-lasting connections that will continue long after the last note has been played.

  • Make a donation: Just £24.96 could pay for an isolated older person to join a musical performance and connect with others in their community over a cup of tea. £750 could pay for a whole event bringing over 30 people together. You could even sponsor a whole series of monthly Songs & Scones events in your community, contact us on [email protected] to discuss. Every donation large or small will make a difference.

We are incredibly grateful for the support we receive from individual donors, fundraisers and organisations.
