Free weekly 'jam' sessions no matter what your ability
Critically acclaimed bassist Jah Wobble will be leading free weekly ‘jam’ sessions – entitled “Tuned In” at Wimbledon Library.
The sessions start on Monday January 28 at 7pm at Merton Arts Space at the rear of the library. The project aims to bring people together across the borough through a mutual love of music. Participants will meet new people and play an instrument or exercise.

It is estimated there could be 8,000 lonely people in the borough. London’s older people population rank top as the loneliest in the country with more than four out of five (87%) feeling lonely at least some of the time.
Merton Council is working in partnership with AFC Wimbledon, Fulham FC, One You Merton and GLL to provide the sessions with the main focus being directed musical ‘jam’ sessions that people can get involved with no matter their ability.
Merton Council’s Cabinet Member for Community and Culture, Councillor Nick Draper, said: “What a wonderful idea! It’s very easy for people to become lonely in our busy metropolis, and music and sport are ideal ways to find new friends. Get the serotonin flowing!”
