JiggleBeamers is our fantastic session for families with pre-school children!

Bring your little ones along to our weekly play session in Hetton Silver Band Hall in the 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.
