We would like to thank all those who participated in and attended the first ever Panel Discussion at The Limes on 3rd December 2017. The subject of The Therapeutic Uses of Music was presented by several music therapy practitioners, followed by a discussion with the audience. The event was extremely interesting and a total of £209 was donated to the Exuberant Trust.

Watch this space for more news, as Trustee Susanna Graham-Jones has already been extremely busy organising what promises to be nearly a full calendar of Music at the Limes events for 2018!
