Music for Martin House

01 May 2018 - 9:00 AM  |  Venues across North, East and West Yorkshire

Whether you play in a band or orchestra, sing in a choir, give recitals or spin the decks, or whether you promote gigs or represent an events venue, you can join the movement of concerts across the whole of West, North and East Yorkshire raising money for children with life-shortening illnesses under the banner of Music for Martin House.

May is the month – Music for Martin House month – and all throughout this month, we are asking our incredible supporters to organise gigs, concerts, open mic nights and recitals in their local venues. We are asking you to spread the word and raise awareness and money for the children and families in your local community who are in need of our support.

It could be anything from live-streaming a gig from your bedroom and asking for donations, to putting on a whole new event or festival – and anything in between. If you already have a concert planned for May, perhaps you could donate a percentage of the profits, or run a raffle at it? Or ask at the door for guest list donations? There are so many ways to support Music for Martin House and how you do it is down to you! 

Music plays a central role in life at Martin House and is key in creating a creative and energising environment. Every day, music can be heard almost constantly around the house; it could be teenagers recording DJ mixes in the purpose-built recording studio, groups of families joined together in a fun, interactive sing along in the conservatory, or intimate, one to one sessions for a child with complex needs at the bedside – or even live bands at LodgeFest, Martin House’s own Music Festival! 

If you would like to put on a concert in May for Music for Martin House, please get in touch on 01937 844569 or email cverney@martinhouse.org.uk. An information pack will be available shortly to help you with organising your event.
