Participation and learning are at the heart of the Music@Malling programme with a series of differentiated outreach projects that run throughout the year.

The projects are designed to inspire creativity and encourage young people to perform, develop their artistic skills and use their imagination. We aim to embed music and creativity in local primary and secondary schools and provide children and young people direct access to outstanding arts practitioners through outreach and world class concerts.

Music@Malling work in partnerships with international, national and regional organisations to develop these projects which engage hundreds of people each year.

All our outreach is FREE to participants and all concerts are FREE to under 25’s to encourage inclusivity and engagement.

For 2024 Music@Malling  has the following outreach projects:

  • Let’s Get Creative – a series of live interactive shows for pre-schoolers, parents and carers.
  • Bach + – 5 primary schools are involved in whole-class composition and performance based around music by J S Bach, linked to the Bach + weekend. Includes our Bach for Schools concert on Friday 26 April at 2pm.
