Breathing Space | Huddersfield

Breathing  Space offers people with dementia and their family member, partner, carer or support worker a range of creative activities.  It’s proven that taking part in creative activities has positive benefits to mental and physical health and well being.  Participants can take part in weekly group sessions where they can meet people, make friends and have fun.  Sessions include music and song, movement, dance and visual arts.  It’s a place to revisit forgotten stories, songs, creative skills and movement and explore new and exciting ones.  Absolutely no previous experience is needed.

Dance with Janetta Maxwell | January 6 - February 10

Start the new year with some fun in this series of dance sessions where the focus is on nourishing wellbeing and self esteem and shaking off the cobwebs. There is no attempt to remember steps from previous weeks, learn particular techniques, or put anyone on the spot. 

Enjoy listening and dancing to a wide range of music, from familiar classics to current hits and everything in between.

Absolutely no previous experience, or confidence, is needed.


After half-term

Railway Tales –  Visual Art & Reminiscence with Andrea Freeman | February 24 - March 30

Join visual artist Andrea in these fun, friendly and supportive workshops.

We’ll start by sharing our railway tales and experiences which we’ll then transform into mini plays. We’ll design and make puppets using found materials and construct a performance space or stage where our plays will come to life.

Absolutely no previous experience is needed, honest!  


Not sure if it’s for you?  Give it a try and see how you feel.
