In their latest project, you can get involved in the global music conversation by making a graphic score with the School of Noise (yes - there are prizes!) but check out a ton of other fun to be had on their activities page including the mini-beasts safari lesson you could do in any open space.

Trio of Men describe themselves as municipal song-makers. Put on some headphones and deep dive into the testing tank.

Get involved in the Big Queer Quiz hosted by RuPaul’s Drag Race favourite – Sum Ting Wong at the end of the festival and donate to Kaleidoscope Trust, a non-profit organisation that campaigns for the human rights of LGBT+ people in countries where they are discriminated.

The excellent Brighton Festival was yet another arts casualty of all of this. Some of their programme went digital including this lovely children’s show, Groove Into the Woods: A Video Storybook from Groove Baby, it features an almost live band, musical interaction and 3D animation. Join three friends on their quest to save some grown-ups from some horrible trolls. Singing, dancing and adventure all included. Get it in your diary for next year and donate to the festival if you can.
