Our best news this month is that more of our projects are returning to 'face to face, in the room, making music together' sessions. We’ve made the most of digital technology during the pandemic, and we will continue to use it as an integral part of our projects. But nothing quite beats being there.

So we’re more than pleased to be able to say that after eighteen months of remote music sessions, our music leaders will be back in the Mother and Baby Units of Yorkshire’s Women’s Prisons this month. So we will be meeting new residents and getting to know Mums and their babies, leading singing and musical games and playing instruments.

We’re also re-starting some of our work with young people at risk, and who are in contact with their local Youth Services, and our first short project will be with a group of Roma young people in Sheffield, who will be visiting a community recording studio each week to develop their songwriting, instrumental and recording and editing skills. We’re planning to put on a performance event for their local community too, so they can show what they’ve learned.
