Classes in Darley Abbey

No classes are running at present. However, during the Covid-19 crisis, we are running online sessions via Facebook Live, and are likely to continue with online sessions once Lockdown is lifted, to allow those who are in areas where we currently do not operate classes to join our sessions.

Our FREE Facebook sessions will run Monday – Friday at 9.30 during Lockdown (not Bank Holidays unless otherwise specified). Feel free to join us at

Thursdays 9.45 – 10.45, 1 hour Music Session

This is a large Hall which can accommodate a large number of children, although this class goes up and down in terms of numbers! We have access to the garden and in the past has been one of the venues that we have used for our Summer Picnics. It has baby change facilities and a large car park.

Classes cover a range of songs – many of which are repeated weekly to aid learning. Some sessions are also themed classes  – Dinosaurs, Dogs, Under the Sea, On the Farm etc and include some new songs on that theme.

We have a number of regular ‘favourites’ that we do each week, such as Dingle Dangle Scarecrow, parachute activities, Music Man and Sleeping Bunnies, as well as puppets, bubbles, wiggle sticks and lots of action songs.

All of our classes have been inspected and assessed by the Children’s Activities Association as being to a very high standard and all class activities have some learning objectives – whether it is to develop listening skills, speech and language, motor skills (fine and gross motor skills), or help with socialisation and co-operation.

This class is usually run by Jacqui.

NB If you are a new customer coming for the first time, your session will be charged at a discounted rate – £2.50 over 1s and £1 under 1s.

Darley Abbey Village Hall is a large venue with ample free parking and baby change facilities.
