Description

On Saturday 4th May Camden Tour Guides Association members are giving a walk around West Hampstead, NW6 concentrating on the varied music connections of this special area. The walk is being held to support Councillor Jenny Headlam-Wells’ chosen charity for her year as Mayor of Camden 2018-2019. Her aim is to widen access to the arts and culture for the children and young people of Camden, through the medium of music. Music-making should not be an elitist pursuit, but be accessible to all Camden’s children and young people. In the words of Philip Pullman, ‘Every child has a right to the experience of culture. Children need art and stories and poems and music as much as they need love and food and fresh air and play’. The Camden Music Trust helps fund: four-year scholarships for talented children facing barriers to accessing music; inclusive music events, including the Camden Schools’ Music Festival at the Royal Albert Hall; Saturday music centres, holiday courses and over 35 music ensembles, including jazz groups, orchestras and choirs; and musical instruments for loan.

A guided walk charity themed on music in West Hampstead with the Mayor of Camden Cllr Jenny Headlam Wells attending .

45 free tickets (only one ticket per Email address please) . Suggested Minimum contribution for waged people of £10 please . Duration 1hr 30 minutes
