Join Concerteenies for a truly unique musical experience combining live music with Polly Ives and Alex Lyon (clarinet and bass clarinet) and creative wellbeing and meflexology™ with holistic therapist Lynn Butler. Bring your 0-5 year olds to Site Gallery for an immersive session of sound-healing instruments, lullabies, body-scanning and mindfulness.

Site Gallery’s current exhibition, ‘False Note’, is a solo exhibition by Freya Dooley comprising a suite of interconnected works which broadly explore themes of replacement, communication and connection.

Sessions are welcoming and inclusive to all with buggy/ wheelchair access, nappy changing facilities, and breastfeeding is welcome. Kollective Kitchen is open from 8am.

Alex Lyon is an eclectic, cross-genre musician and composer based in South East London, specialising in contemporary music and free improvisation on clarinet and bass clarinet. Her solo work blends minimalism and traditional music influences with extended clarinet technique. She is an adept collaborator and improviser across contemporary classical, free jazz, and traditional music, shaped by her studies at Sheffield University and Trinity Laban Conservatoire. She has performed at many venues across the UK, such as Kings Place, Woolwich Works, and the Brighton Dome with the Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra.

Polly Ives is one of the UK’s leading music educationalists with a varied portfolio as a concert presenter, narrator, promoter, workshop leader, trainer and cellist. She regularly produces and presents children’s concerts alongside many highly renowned orchestras, ensembles, soloists and venues (including London Philharmonic Orchestra, London Mozart Players, Britten Sinfonia, Wigmore Hall and Opera North). She has worked with CBeebies, BBC Radio 3 and Scala Radio. She is also Founder and Creative Director of Concerteenies.
