New mums can get a taste of an upcoming programme of music, theatre and creative play at Knowsley’s Libraries, next week. The taster sessions are open to women who are pregnant or have babies under 2 years old in Knowsley.
On Wednesday 6 and Friday 8 September, Huyton Library Halewood Library and Kirkby Library will each play host to three drop-in taster sessions delivered by Creative Spaces Co., Dramatic Recovery and Singing Mamas and support workers from the a number of different referring agencies will be attending the taster sessions.
The Creative Spaces sessions will be bringing a taster of their Reading Folk group, a book club for perinatal women.
Dramatic Recovery will offer singing, reading and drama, all for new mums and babies. The drama sessions will consist of discussing, writing and theatre all around themes of community and perinatal support.
