Singing, Dancing and much more at St Matthew’s this Autumn

Holbeck Together is excited to share its brand new schedule for the Autumn. Along with a jam-packed month of Christmas festivities, the time has come to welcome back the community’s much-loved singing and line dancing classes after a long hiatus.

If you enjoy a good sing-along, join our Yellowbirds Choir Singing Group from 2-3pm every Tuesday at St Matthew’s Community Centre in Holbeck. The Yellowbirds Choir sings classic songs through the ages from Cole Porter to Abba and more! Learn to sing with confidence, make new friends and have fun in this choir. Everybody is welcome – there is no need to read music or have experience of singing. The group costs £2 per session and is led by Jessica Bowie accompanied by her ukulele: yourukuleletutor.com.

If you think you might prefer to dust off your dancing shoes, come along to our line dancing group on Thursdays from 11.30am–12.30pm at St Matthew’s. No experience is required so anyone is welcome to join us and give it a try. The session costs £2 per session.

There will be a chance to see the choir in action at The Big Christmas Get Together at St Matthew’s on Friday 17 December, along with a performance from our Dance On group. The community is invited to join us for food, entertainment, performances and much more. Watch this space for more information.

On Halloween itself there is a chance to browse Holbeck Together’s brand new clothes shop at a pop-up sale. The shop will be open from 10am-2pm at St Matthew’s on Sunday 31 October. Join us to get your hands on a huge range of clothes, shoes, accessories and more, as well as a bacon sandwich and a coffee at our Community Cafe.

Other highlights this Autumn include trips to Bury, Tong Garden Centre and a meal outing to Chiquitos, as well as Halloween and Bonfire Night themed lunches, and a Christmas outing to the pantomime.

Make sure you browse through the full schedule and get the dates in your diary. For more information about any of Holbeck Together’s activities and services, or to enquire about booking, please call the office on (0113) 245 5553.
