Singing Mamas are a national non-profit working across the UK. We empower women to improve maternal wellbeing by creating song-sharing communities.

“When I come away from Singing Mamas I just feel lighter, more joyful and more connected to myself, through the music and more connected to the other people.”

“As a young mum it can be quite isolating so it’s great to get out of the house and do something that’s not necessarily for your child but that they can be involved too. Having that little bit of ‘me time’ is really important to me.”

What to expect in a singing mama group.
An hour of songs taught by ear there is no audition, no sheet music, no experience required. Just come join us in the joy of singing in a circle!

A safe space to come along, women of all ages and phases of life are welcome, with or without a child. The last half an hour is chatting and connecting whilst enjoying tea and cake.

A relaxed, informal, supportive group- no judgement or expectations. Just come as you are!
