Our guitar group was set up to give people with mental health difficulties the opportunity to engage with music.
We are a beginner guitar group, and we meet every Sunday between 2pm and 4pm. Our main aim is to have fun, and learn a few guitar tricks, chords and strumming techniques along the way. Our song repertoire ranges from The Beatles to Robbie Williams, so there’s a song for everyone.
