Give a Gig Week

Thank you so much to everyone who organised, hosted, promoted, attended or performed at a music event for Give a Gig Week 2018!

With over 100 gigs taking place nationwide between 16 and 25 March – and a lineup including Craig David, Nadia Rose, Newton Faulkner, Frisco, The Wombats, FEMME, over a hundred choirs, young people from Youth Music projects nationwide, and every genre from jazz to grime to heavy metal – it’s been a fantastic celebration of music in all its beauty and diversity.

Most importantly, the money raised from Give a Gig Week will be invested in bringing life-changing music-making projects to children and young people around the country who’d otherwise miss out.
