Soft Touch Arts Return

That time of year is upon us again, with music specialists coming into all of the physical sites of the Children's Hospital School. Soft Touch Arts are back for the fourth year to run workshops about music performance, recording and creation. Returning to Willow Bank and Ward 3, the group has been offering sessions at the LRI for the first time to make sure a large amount of CHS students have access to musical enrichment.

Steve and Perry from the organization will conclude the run of sessions in the summer term, which will feature two groups from Willow Bank recording original material at the Soft Touch studio based on New Walk in Leicester.
