Who we are
We are a small charity bringing music to the heart of healthcare in Sussex and Surrey. Working in partnership with NHS healthcare settings and with people of all ages in hospital, we turn clinical places into cultural spaces, creating joy, levity, connection and expression through shared music-making.
We run weekly music-making sessions at patients’ bedsides and group settings including neonatal units, children’s hospitals, psychiatric units and older people’s wards.
