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

Nicola Farnon - Singer-songwriter and jazz musician, Wiltshire born and now Sheffield resident, Nicola has a remarkable musical pedigree, both parents being professional classical musicians and her great uncle no less than the late Robert Farnon. After an early start on piano and cello (grade 8 in both by the age of eleven), she followed her dad's love of the 'standards' into jazz via the double bass and an enchanting voice which was developed during her Performing Arts studies at Middlesex University. Appearing regularly on the jazz circuit with her eclectic mix of jazz, blues and soul, Nicola is a class act with a passionate and swinging style, outstanding personality and a charismatic stage presence to match - with an uncanny ability to adapt her performance to captivate and embrace any audience.

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.
