Songhaven’s mission is to:

bring authentic and meaningful human connection to people living with dementia through the power of professional music performances.

We believe people living with dementia (and their carers and companions) deserve the dignity of high quality music in a relaxed, inclusive, and joyous atmosphere.

To achieve our mission, we organise approximately 80 dementia-friendly events throughout the year – all featuring professional classically-trained artists. These events include:

  • The free public Songhaven Concert Series in London, held monthly in both Bloomsbury and Knightsbridge;
  • Our Songhaven Care Concerts scheme, with performance visits to care homes and community centres;
  • Annual Group Singing Workshop sessions; and
  • One-off special events in celebration of National Care Home Open Day, BBC Music Day, Bloomsbury Festival, Age of Creativity Festival, Dementia Action Week, and Silver Sunday in Westminster.

Please see below for details of OUR UPCOMING EVENTS.
