October is Musical Tea Month - Playlist for Life

October is Musical Tea month!

We’ve all been looking for creative ways to stay connected and support one another while the need for social distancing continues. Hosting a Musical Tea is a great excuse to get together, have a cuppa and cake, and share our favourite songs and memories. Playlist for Life have lots of ideas for safely hosting Musical Teas, from socially distanced catch-ups in person or on the phone, to meeting up in groups over video call. However you want to celebrate your Musical Tea, Playlist for Life have free resources and guidance to help you make the most of your event in a safe and enjoyable way. Register, and you’ll be given access to their Musical Tea resources page where you will find email invitations, printable postcards, bunting, cake flags, colourful Zoom backgrounds, fun music activities, music-inspired recipe ideas and more.

“Musical Teas bring people together to celebrate the connection between music and memories while raising awareness of the power of personal music for people living with dementia.” Any donations they receive from Musical Teas will go directly to their goal of sharing the power of personal music with those who could benefit most. They understand that some individuals and organisations will not be in a position to ask for donations and we do not want this to put anyone off hosting a Musical Tea – raising awareness of the power of personal music is just as important to us as raising funds.
