This post is about Northamptonshire Music Education Hub’s "Inclusive Ensemble" initiative - part of our Fund B “Music Forge” programme – developed in partnership with Friar's Academy (SEN/D school, secondary level) in Wellingborough.

We thought the Give a Gig project was a fantastic opportunity for our young people to perform and feel conected to projects and other work going on across the country. They have put together a little video and are pround to have raised funds for youth Music. We hope it all runs again next year. What experiences did other organisations have?
