Local Charity Community Music Whickham and Swalwell have arranged a Music Festival during November.
Tickets via Eventbrite or on the door. More details on Facebook or via our website.
We are a charitable incorporated organisation, formed for the provision of music covering the community districts of Whickham and Swalwell in the NE16 postcode area of Gateshead.
We formed in September 2014 to address a gap in the music facilities available across the community for the education, performance and appreciation of music. We received our charitable status in June 2015.
Our governance structure is by way of a board of volunteer trustees who are also local residents:
We are also supported by a number of local resident groups including Whickham Medical Centre Patients Group, St Mary the Virgin Church, Whickham and Holy Trinity Church in Swalwell.
Our mission is to advance the education of the community in all aspects of music making and appreciation by the provision of expert tuition, materials, performance opportunities, public concerts, lectures and recitals.
The trustees raise funds to support and organise facilities for musical education for the public for all ages and abilities. This involves hiring accommodation, providing tutors and purchasing equipment such as musical instruments often needing repair, sheet music and music stands.
