I believe music will play a powerful role in reuniting communities after the isolation and hardship experienced by many through the pandemic, and I hope that our halls will be a beacon for that reconnection.

I am proud to lead a superb team of staff at B:Music, all of whom care passionately about what they do and who openly share their love of live music with everyone that we connect with as a music charity.
