Review of youth music provision in Bristol

Since November 2014 BPM have been undertaking a comprehensive review into the youth music education landscape in Bristol.

Working with respected industry consultant Nod Knowles the review celebrates the strength and breadth of the Bristol music scene, the enthusiasm and talent of its young musicians and the extensive range of provision of support for them from a highly committed network of organisations.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the consultation.  It’s an ever changing landscape for schools and community music making and we look forward to hearing your ideas on how to move forward.

A Review of Youth Music and Music Education in Bristol

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.
