Taster Session For Sheffield 'Musical Pocket Park'

Our outreach team are in Sheffield today, giving local residents the chance to play a number of our outdoor musical instruments ahead of plans to create a ‘musical pocket park’ in the city.

The 'taster session', inviting residents and visitors to play a selection of instruments in the park to get a flavour of what it could be like, has been arranged by the ChangingSheff action group. ChangingSheff have an idea to transform Fountain Square Park, near Barker's Pool, into a unique 'musical pocket park' to be enjoyed by all in the community from young families, to students or seniors and will be used for relieving stress, group therapy sessions, or for citizens just looking for fun!

ChangingSheff are a vibrant volunteer group of residents working to make improvements to Sheffield's city centre and believe strongly in the potential for a modern, vibrant, exciting hub and bringing lively facilities for all to enjoy. The group is understood to have submitted initial plans to for the music park to Sheffield City Council for consideration.

Group chairman Peter Sephton said: “We think it will be a lot of fun and educational for parents and their little ones in particular. This offers fully inclusive musical enjoyment for all ages, abilities and disabilities.”

Sheffield Central & North West Neighbourhood Police came along and had a little play on the Rainbow Cavatina and said "What a great idea for the city centre!"
