Our new Artsmark film

Artsmark, awarded by Arts Council England, celebrates schools that champion the arts and strive for excellence in their provision.

Over the course of 2016 Bristol Plays Music has been running a pilot in primary schools across Bristol on behalf of the Arts Council, to explore how Music Education Hubs can work with Artsmark.  Watch our short film to find out more about the pilot and how your school can get involved.

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.
