On 19 July 2017 the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Arts, Health and Wellbeing, co-chaired by former arts ministers Lord Howarth and Ed Vaizey MP, launched its Inquiry Report, “Creative Health: The Arts for Health and Wellbeing”. Our Director of Music Services, Simon Procter, was present at Portcullis House for the launch, and writes below:

We're getting ready to Get Loud on 13 Sept for our national awareness day, thanks to campaign sponsors SSE!

Every day our music therapists change the lives of vulnerable and isolated people across the UK. Get Loud will enable us to reach more people in more places and provide more services to those who need our support.

The West London Music Festival

The West London Music Festival, which took place on 13 July, was a brilliant success – with an eclectic range of artists coming together to celebrate music and raise awareness of Nordoff Robbins and music therapy.

Our Head of Research Dr Neta Spiro has, along with Michael Schober, conducted research that explored how audience members and improvisers can view a performance in different ways, and we wanted to share this with you.

Over to Neta!

Are you in London and free on Thursday? You'll definitely want to be getting your hands on a ticket to the West London Music Festival!

Taking place from 7pm on 13 July at Bush Hall in Shepherd’s Bush, it's looking to be a great event, organised by the wonderful singer/songwriter Purdy.

We asked Purdy for a few words about how she came to organise the night in support of Nordoff Robbins.
