Brighthelm Centre activities hall


Silver Strings is a music session for older people who’ve always wanted to play a stringed instrument. At Silver Strings, we warm up gently and play in pairs as part of a larger group to make music together. Everyone over 50 is welcome, regardless of previous experience – no music reading is necessary, and everyone can choose the material we play.

Learning an instrument in a group keeps our minds active and our fingers supple – and it’s a lot of fun! Participants say: I get such a sense of achievement (SW), My hands are now more agile (DP), Every week is a highlight! (RW).

We even provide the instruments: choose violin, viola or cello – or try all three!

The sessions are facilitated by cellist and Goldsmiths-trained music leader Isabel Emerson and run by Open Strings in association with Age UK Brighton & Hove.

Silver Strings is kindly supported by the Brighthelm Small Grants Scheme.

Where: The Brighthelm Centre, North Road, BN1 1YD

When: weekly Tuesdays, 9:30-11:30am

Cost: first session free – come and try us out! £11/wk (payable monthly) thereafter, inclusive of instrument use
