Join us for the second Intergenerational Skill Swap!
An afternoon of alternative learning, conversation and new skills for young and old.
This week we focus on MUSIC & ENTERTAINMENT, with four local experts: Jules Osmany from BBC Radio’s Treasure Quest, International singing sensation That Joe Payne, The Bard of Northampton Chris Matthewman and Leon Denton from Lay it Down the multi award winning DJ / rap / R&B night at The Lab! They will share their knowledge with us in a series of short but fascinating learning sessions. Everyone gets a chance to experience each activity and then we’ll get together to share what we’ve learned at the end.
Parents / carers MUST stay with their children but you are free to have a coffee and chat to other parents while your young people explore. The Lab has a full Child Protection Policy and takes safeguarding seriously. We regret we do not have the capacity to to provide extra support for SEN kids at these events but if you are able to come and provide that extra support for your child then you are very welcome to attend. If you’d like to discuss access requirements with us please email on the address below.
Refreshments are supplied!
FUTURE EVENTS: There will be an event each fortnight. Each session will focus on a topic: Environment, Music, Food, New Tech… and we’ll be looking for ideas for the last session and for more volunteer ‘experts’ to lead the conversations. Experts can be of all ages, you just need to be enthusiastic and knowledgable enough about your subject to lead a conversation or short workshop for 20 minutes.
Please book your free tickets if you’d like to attend… HERE
