The HeadStrong Singers

The HeadStrong Singers is a weekly social singing group for anyone living with a head or brain injury or illness, plus their carers, friends, family, and anybody else who enjoys a fun and relaxed sing as part of a group. Due to Covid19, our sessions are currently streamed online every Monday from 1pm-2:15pm at our Musical Director's YouTube channel and are open to anybody who wants to sing with us!

When the world returns to normal and we can enjoy our face-to-face sessions again, we will meet every Monday from 1pm-2:30pm at Wood Avenue Library in Folkestone. Everyone is always welcome!
