The Disability Confident Government scheme supports employers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to your workplace.
Launched in May 2011 the Bristol Music Trust (BMT) is an exciting independent charity with two distinct aims.
The first is to manage the operations of Colston Hall, Bristol’s largest concert venue, where people have been enjoying music since 1867; developing a diverse musical programme, leading a major capital refurbishment programme and securing its commercial success. The Hall presents a wonderful opportunity to build a diverse Music & Music Education Centre; comprising a major concert hall, a smaller intimate hall, a separate education centre and an inspiring modern foyer. From September 2018, BMT are responsible for the National Centre for Inclusive Excellence, which has been set up to explore and champion the role of music and the arts in civic life and break down barriers preventing people from fulfilling their musical potential.
We are in a period of major change for the Trust since our transformation project began in June 2018 to deliver a £48.8m redevelopment programme. This will see a complete refurbishment of our two main Halls and the creation of a new Hall and music education centre in the cellars.
The second aim is to drive forward music across Bristol; working in partnership with city wide organisations; leading on music education through Creative Learning & Engagement, commissioning new works, supporting local musicians, and promoting music across all communities to build on the vibrant talent already in the city. Much more, we want the Bristol music scene to stand out with its own unique culture and internationally renowned reputation.
Bristol Music Trust’s vision is to put music at the heart of Bristol life, and to lead a strategic, holistic, citywide approach to promoting music so that it flourishes through performance, composition, participation and education.
