Live Music

We have a wide range of musicians who deliver the live music programme across our mental health wards. There is a strong emphasis on engagement with service users, rather than just performance. 

We welcome applications from musicians who would like to take part in the programme - to enquire please email: artsforhealth@mpft.nhs.uk.  

Feedback from service users, staff & guests:

Marvellous atmosphere, very therapeutic, excellent music - I enjoyed the beautiful music very much - Brilliant music from incredibly talented musicians! - Most enjoyable and relaxing.
