Half term at Bramley Lawn

Half term’s a great time for grandparents to get together with their grandchildren. Bramley Lawn is holding two activities during half term that give you a chance to try something new and have plenty of fun together.

Bring yourself, your grandchildren or your kids along to learn the ukelele, sing-along to the Jungle Book on our cinema screen, or fill your belly with lovely Italian treats cooked for our birthday Restaurant Night.

Ukes at the Lawn (beginners)

Tuesday 16 February, 11.00-12.00 (£2.00 per person).
After one hour, you’ll be playing a tune – and before you know it, you’re George Formby II. You can borrow a ukelele from us, bring your own, or use our button-press ukeleles designed to make it easier to change chord, and especially good if you have trouble with manual dexterity. Bring everyone, this is an all-ages, and very fun session for beginners.
Ukeleles provided but we’ll have a limited number so if you want to bring your own please do.
Please reserve a seat – email or phone 0113 236 1644

Sing-Along-Jungle Book (U)

Thursday 18 February, 1.30-3.30. (Free, donations welcome).
Forget the February rain, we’re curling up indoors with blankets and hot chocolate for a right good sing-along to the Jungle Book on our big cinema screen. With subtitles and large text song sheets so you can really sing along as these hip cats roam the jungle!
This screening is dementia friendly, and all ages are welcome – so bring the family!
Please reserve a seat – email or phone 0113 236 1644

Restaurant Night at Bramley Lawn

Saturday 21 February, from 6.00 (Pay what you decide on the night)
