Bristol Plays Music provides partnership funding to Bristol Ensemble’s Preludes. Preludes is an innovative music education programme starting in reception. The programme targets schools in challenging areas of the city and provides a high quality holistic learning experience that teaches the fundamentals of classical music through whole class ensemble teaching. Pupils in KS1 are able to access Preludes.

The School Music Education Plan supports schools to choose the most suitable and sustainable programme for their school/pupils.

We’re changing

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.

Click below to find out more about how we’re changing, watch our name announcement, and discover how we want everyone to share in the joy of live music.
