About the event: 



This event is currently full, however we are running this event on other dates which still have availability:

Tuesday 14 April, 4pm to 6pm

Wednesday 3 June, 1.30pm to 3.30pm

Due to the current outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, and following advice from the government on minimising social contact, Making Music has taken the decision to host this event online using Zoom.

Please see our news item for further information on coronavirus and its effect on leisure-time music groups.

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!

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.

Who is this event for?
Anyone is welcome to take part in this event, but it will be particularly relevant to anyone who looks after your group’s marketing, recruitment, website or social media.

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 comes up on the topic!

More reasons to take part:

  • Hear from other leisure-time music groups about their experiences
  • 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
