Horfield Primary School is widely recognised across the South West as a school with outstanding musical achievement. The school recently received the Artsmark Platinum award by the Arts Council, England. We are delighted to work in partnership with Bristol Plays Music to offer these courses to specialist and non-specialist music practitioners.
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.
