A fun and friendly singing group for people living with Parkinson’s and their companions.

Skylarks (Sing to Beat Parkinson’s) groups use techniques based on years of research to help those with Parkinson’s to maintain or improve their psychological and physical wellbeing through taking part in regular singing activity. New members, partners and friends always welcome, no previous singing experience required.

The East Suffolk Skylarks STBP singing group is returning (digitally) after almost a year’s hiatus.

Sessions will initially occur every Thursday morning in March and will be one hour long. They will be hosted by Amy Mallett via Zoom and the theme of the sessions will be about celebrating springtime.

Britten Pears Arts will also be holding a ‘tech check-in’ on the last Thursday in February, as a chance to make sure participants are comfortable with how to use the Zoom platform and have a quick check-in and run through of how to set Zoom up, in preparation for the first session on Thursday 4 March.
