So Many Beauties Dementia Friendly Music Festival

The Bridgewater Hall, Lower Mosley Street, Manchester, M2 3WS 26th September 2019

The So Many Beauties project offers creative music-making opportunities for people living with dementia. On BBC Music Day 2019 The Bridgewater Hall will host Manchester’s first dementia-friendly music festival. The festival will provide a safe space for people of all ages to explore different musical activities. No previous musical experience is required to enjoy the day!

There will be gentle performances of familiar songs and tunes, as well as performances of music composed by people living with dementia. There will also be the chance to join in with discussions, to play instruments and to create new pieces of music on the day.

A range of dementia support organisations will also be present to provide information and advice for people wanting to find out more about living with dementia.

This event is brought to you by So Many Beauties in partnership with MiHC, Manchester Camerata, RNCM and The Bridgewater Hall in collaboration with BBC Music Day.
