Musical Bin Dippers
The Musical Bin Dippers project at South Wigston was formed in response to the need in the area for activities for parents and young children. The team wanted to tie it in with the area’s heritage, in particular the garment industry and help people feel a sense of pride in their area’s past and its skills and traditions.
The project will run at the Menphys Hub in South Wigston, which includes the library, a café and lots of rooms which are used for a variety of activities.
The team is working in partnership with a company called Babygigs, a community interest company, who run musical sessions for young children introducing them to a variety of classical instruments in a fun and accessible way. In partnership with the team, Babygigs have created a series of sessions that celebrate the heritage of South Wigston, linking back to the projects aims.
During sessions we listen to live music, create art and take part in interactive stories at the local library. Attendees can enjoy finding out more about the local area whilst building skills and confidence.
