Music activities for young people at Middlesbrough Town Hall (and online)

We’re currently offering music activities for young people in face-to-face group sessions at the Town Hall. All sessions are free for those who need it to be. Most sessions are also available to access online. Activities are open to all young people ages 6-18, or up to 25 if they identify as disabled or have a SEN support plan.

Activities are term time only. Our current term ends the week of 19th July and recommences on 13th September. Sessions will not be running on Bank Holiday Mondays.

Please note: Our music sessions are subject to COVID-19 guidelines. Please contact us for the latest updates.

Join in online

Sessions marked with a star ★ mean that you can access these sessions online through video call so that you are virtually ‘in the room’ at the time. This option provides the opportunity to join in from home, or just watch the session with camera off if you’re not sure whether you want to join! Where there is an online session as well as a face-to-face session, the online session will be a repeat of the live session so that young people can attend either option and not miss out on any content.
