Cuppa Concerts are our series of relaxed small-ensemble concerts, specially programmed for people living in care and their carers. These short performances are designed to make audiences feel at ease and feature a range of familiar music performed by CBSO musicians live at the CBSO Centre in central Birmingham.
We also place an emphasis on interaction and socialisation during the concert, to help audiences engage with the music, performers, and those around them. We are happy for audience members to chat to one another, and we feature sing- and play-along sections, providing a range of percussion instruments for audiences to enjoy. We also keep the hall well-lit during the concert, rather than dimming the auditorium lights.
After the concert, we host a tea-party with hot drinks and cakes, which are included in the ticket price. This is also an opportunity to chat with fellow audience members, and the performers who would be more than happy to answer any questions you have!
