In 2018 we saw over 1,000 under 5’s and their adults visit The Red House to participate in Mini Music Makers, new sessions for under 5s. The success and local need for these sessions has helped us forge stronger relationships with local families.

Therefore we are delighted that our recent application to the Tesco Bags of Help Grant Scheme has been successful. Mini Music Makers, alongside two other projects in the region will go forward to a vote in Tesco stores where customers will decide the outcome by voting for their favourite project each time they shop. Voting will take place from Friday 1 March to Tuesday 30 April 2019 in their stores in Aldeburgh, Saxmundham and Diss.

This grant will provide a valuable service to young families in Aldeburgh and the surrounding area. It will help to develop engagement with music for families, especially those who feel isolated and in need of support. We hope the successful grant will help provide families and children a range of safe and accessible resources and equipment to engage with whilst they are on site.

The project with the highest number of votes across your region will receive £4,000, the second placed project £2,000, and the third £1,000.
