VENUES

Trinity 'Barn Hill' Methodist Church in Stamford is opposite the Police Station and there is a small car park at the back. On foot, it is only a ten minute walk from the station, across the meadows, and is near Red Lion Square and All Saints Church in the middle of town. It's also very near to the Crown Hotel. 


Other venues we use:

United Reformed Church Hall (not the Church) Stamford is on Broad Street, Stamford, PE9 1PJ  Parking on Broad Street is only 1 hour so it's advisable to park in the North Street (or other) car park. Disabled access down into the church hall is via a lift.
The Yard (previously Rascals) is at Unit 2, West Street Business Park, Stamford, PE9 2PL, near Waitrose, with a small car park that does get rather busy. Lovely cafe inside the soft play centre.
Bainton Reading Room is a lovely small venue, all on one level with disabled access and toilets. Here's the website www.baintonreadingroom.com and there are directions on there, but the address is Barnack Road (on the corner of Badinton Lane), Bainton, near Stamford and Tallington, PE9 3AE


Here's a very short video showing how mesmerising it is for a baby to experience live music. In this video, my daughter hears the flute for the first time, played by Lisa Nelsen, who is one of the artists we are privileged to have on the Cosy Concert roster!

 

Cosy Concerts allow babies, children and their carers, to experience live classical music in a friendly environment.
