A new festival celebrating young people’s music making in Bristol…

We’re pleased to have teamed up with Bristol Plays Music to present the first ever Sounds Inspiring Festival, over two weeks of events involving thousands of Bristol’s young people.  Taking place in venues across the city, the festival celebrates everything about young people’s music-making: their energy, talent and imagination.  Coinciding with Green Capital Week, this inaugural year has a ‘green’ theme.  See below for details of the public performance programme, and click the flyer cover at the bottom of the page to see the full line-up of festival events.
