5 A Day Music – Healthy noise for your mind, body and voice!

We’ve just launched our 5 A Day Music – A Recovery Resource for Schools campaign which is a guide for embedding mental health, wellbeing and recovery through the arts into primary age children’s everyday learning spaces.

5 A Day Music – A Recovery Resource for Schools has been developed by the Creative Learning and Engagement team at Bristol Beacon with the support of our partners at Sing Up, Friday Afternoons, and Minute of Listening. We hope this resource helps to inspire music, creativity and healthy minds with our short, fun and easy, practical suggestions and activities to use in the classroom. From boosting our immune systems to shaping communities, music can improve our quality of life.

Just like eating five fruit and vegetables a day, take time to do five things with your class to improve wellbeing, explore identities and support recovery.

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.
