Brighton Dome and Brighton Festival is part of  The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2022, an online fundraising campaign that runs for only seven days.

This Christmas Create Music is raising funds to offer bursaries to young people (aged 5-19) whose families are on low incomes to ensure music making is accessible to all. Running from midday on Tue 29 November until midday on Tue 6 December 2022, any donation that is made during the seven-day period will be matched by The Big Give. One donation, twice the impact. As music lovers, we know that music-making has a positive impact on our well-being, but 1 in 5 young people cannot afford to access music education.

Please click onto the Campaign page and make a donation to this valuable work: If you have any questions about this Campaign, please contact:

We wish you all a music-filled Christmas and year ahead.
