Registration is closed for this event
Many groups have told us that they want to be able to recruit more members, and in particular, to engage better with younger people. Thanks to a legacy left to us by Pauline Thompson, we’ve been able to develop a bank of ideas that can help!

Come along and find out more about the research we’ve done, and how you can use it to help your group reach more people of all ages.

We'll talk about:

  • A summary of the research by Xenia Davis (Youth Engagement Manager) on what motivates under 35 year olds to make music
  • Our recommendations of actions you can take within your group to reach out to and recruit more people (of all ages!)
  • How you can retain new members in your group once they've joined
  • Anything else that arises on the topic!


More reasons to come:

  • Mingle with other music makers over a refreshment
  • An update on new resources and services from Making Music
  • Meet your local Making Music team and ask questions
Cost: FREE for members and non-members

Consultation topic What access issues have you had to consider when making sure members and audiences can attend and enjoy rehearsals and concerts?, What actions do you regularly take to make your rehearsals and concerts accessible?, What resources and support could Making Music offer on accessibility?
Consultation notes_current - HYNT - - Hynt is a new national access scheme that works with theatres and arts centres in Wales to make sure there is a consistent offer available for visitors with an impairment or specific access requirement, and their Carers or Personal Assistants.

- Accessibility can be an unknown – most venues are fit for purpose, but you can't always be sure

- It is not known whether there is anyone not attending because of access issues

- Its important to remember that accessibility is not just physical, there are non physical difficulties, such as mental health issues.

Communication from Making Music
