Bristol Plays Music (BPM) is the music education hub for Bristol. We believe in the power of music – to inspire, teach and transform lives. We want to make sure that every young person has access to music education activities and a platform for musical expression.
Through work with partners and venues across Bristol, BPM will join up opportunities for teaching, learning and performance in a way that everyone can access. Our goal is to promote local music-making and our city’s rich musical talent.
Bristol Plays Music is run by Bristol Music Trust, a registered charity (no. 1140898).
On Wednesday 23 September 2020 Colston Hall changed its name to Bristol Beacon, and this means we’re changing too.
Bristol Plays Music is run by Bristol Music Trust, the charity that also runs the venue formerly known as Colston Hall. These two organisations will soon unite under one name: Bristol Beacon.
