Look out for a brand new, inclusive, children's community choir starting in Retford this April.

The North Notts Makaton Choir is open to all children from ages 5 to 16, with the aim of enhancing community cohesion.


Welcome to North Notts Makaton Choir!

My name is Rachel Downs and I have previously run a very successful Makaton choir with children with special needs for the last three years.

Due to my passion for music and communication, I am starting an inclusive community choir from 19th April, 2016 for children aged 5 – 16 from a variety of different backgrounds and needs.

The aim of the choir is to enhance community cohesion and provide a place where children can express themselves freely and creatively without judgement to develop their confidence and social and communication skills. Children will also be given the opportunity to take part in a variety of events and performances within the local community.

I have had a lot of interest from people about setting up an adults Makaton choir. If anyone is interested in either the children's or an adult's choir, please contact me on the details below.

The North Notts Makaton Choir will be a fantastic and fun experience for all involved, so please feel free to come along and join in.
