Our Stories

Music in Hospitals & Care spreads Joy Through Live Music across the length and breadth of the UK, from the Shetland Isles and the Highlands of Scotland to Northern Ireland, the Valleys of Wales and down to the south coast of England. From lullabies for premature babies to old favourites for those living with dementia, we operate in a wide range of healthcare environments including hospitals, hospices, care homes, day centres, special schools and community settings.

People are at the heart of what we do. Click or tap on the map to discover some of our stories from across the UK and find out more about how people in healthcare are benefitting from live music experiences.
