Bring your little ones along to our weekly play session in the Hetton Band Hall, Pit Village. JiggleBeamers is a session for pre-school children and their families, which includes informal play with toys, snack time, and traditional songs and rhymes.

The sessions have a period feel (with no plastics or batteries) and are a chance for children to make new friends and have fun learning.
