A day of singing together, particularly aimed at people over 50.
Three experienced choir leaders will help us learn a range of songs by ear, without printed music. We expect to make a lot of mistakes!
The emphasis will be on enjoying our singing, as well as socialising over lunch and throughout the day.
At the end of the day friends and families will be invited to a short free concert of the songs we have learnt.
No experience is necessary to take part in the day - beginners and confident singers are welcome.
This will be a dementia-friendly event - people with dementia and their companions are welcome.

- Newydd Housing Association schemes
Type of Event: Music Workshop
This Live Music Now (LMN) Wales project will see a series of performances and a song writing workshop delivered with residents at Newydd Housing Association schemes.
LMN duo String Beats, comprising Angharad Jenkins on the fiddle and beat boxer Dean Yhnell, accompanied by LMN solo singer John Nicholas on guitar.
The musicians will teach participants basic song writing skills, beat box techniques and how to use a loop pedal and use percussion.
During the workshop, the musicians will record samples of participants singing, rapping, beat boxing and playing percussion.
The aim of the project is to produce a final piece of music, using the samples collected, that challenges preconceived ideas of ageing and older people.
PLEASE NOTE This project is closed to the general public - for Newydd Housing Association residents/staff and family only.
Additional funding to carry out the project was received from Newydd Community Regeneration.
Type of Event: Multi Art Festival
In 1205, King John granted the Bishop of Llandaff an annual fayre at Whitsuntide. It continued until the 1880s when its reputation for 'drunkeness and debauchery' caused its demise.
In 2018, Llandaff 50+, in association with the Llandaff Society, is bringing back the May fayre, although rather more sedately!
Newly trained storytellers and guides, funded by Gwanwyn, will be on duty and there'll be medieval-style games, music and refreshments...and maybe even a visit from the Lord of the Manor!
