Interactive Heritage Tours are Now Over
Since November 2022 we have been offering tours of our entire studio building, free to all members of the public and of particular interest to musicians, music fans, local residents and people interested in local history. We have welcomed 135 people into our community music studios and would like to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to come and find out more about us. These lovely people donated a total of £224.32, so again, we say a massive Thank You! The tours were made possible thanks to Leeds Community foundation and Leeds Civic Trust. Without their funding support we would not have met so many wonderful individuals and had so much fun. Some feedback from people attending the tours was: "Increased awareness of music in Leeds. I’ve even bought a guitar to start learning how to play." "Felt good, musically inspired plus, and importantly, it demonstrates there is good in an uncertain world" "I love projects like this that are close to their communities but also have top standards and inspire and uplift people in numerable ways." "I felt very happy to have had the opportunity to bond with my son on the tour and when discussing it afterwards." "Increased my knowledge / awareness of an activity and area that I know little about." The studios are open to all, if you want to pop in and have a look around then please do, if you are a community group looking for a new activity then give us a call as we have been delivering this service for over 20 years and if you are looking for a private party or a work day out then get in touch and we can advise more about our packages.
