Big Top Musical Adventures
We arrived at Cannon Hill Park where the Midlands Arts Centre is located just before 10am. There was plenty of parking available and lots of disabled bays with some right next to the mac, however when we left at 12 it was nearly full. Parking cost £2.20 for 4 hours.
The Weston Studio was well signposted within the mac and toilets (including disabled) were next to the room.
Rosie and Dom who run Big Top Adventures were really friendly and super inclusive, allowing children to feel the instruments while they were playing them and welcoming each child by name. Many parts of the session were signed. Children were encouraged to join in with the repetitive rhythms which ran throughout the session. There was a fantastic variety of percussion instruments for the children to play.
Each child was able to access and enjoy the session which ended, after an hour, using the rhythms they’d learnt to move the parachute. Along with this, singing goodbye to each child led to a clear end.
We really enjoyed this inclusive session, taking part with as much or as little as we wanted and look forward to the next Big Top Musical Adventure later in August.
Sesssions are free of charge at the MAC. Next session Tuesday 27th August: Bollywood & Bhangra. For more information follow the link.
