The National Youth Folk Ensemble celebrates excellence in youth folk music, bringing together talented young folk musicians from across England to create and perform inspiring new arrangements of folk music and work with leading folk artists. 

The Garage believes that music should be for all young people, who should be central to their own musical journeys. 
We are working closely with music deliverers and partner organisations to push boundaries and break down barriers to participation, using an 'innovate, test, embed' approach which explores authentic ways of developing quality music provision 'by for and with' young people.
The Garage strives to keep music participation fresh, engaging and relevant, enabling young people to develop musically, personally and socially and helping music deliverers to develop their practice in new ways.

A music project which is mixing up cultures, styles and genres, designed around collaborations of people and music, this project aims to work with young people from all walks of life.
