Join Severn Arts in the worldwide celebration of music on Monday 21 June 2021. 

Make Music Day UK is a free celebration of music around the world. The event launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique and is now held on the same day in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries on the summer solstice. On 21 June every year thousands of events take place across the globe in what becomes the world’s largest DIY music festival. At this time, music is particularly important so even if physical gatherings can't happen, the plan for Make Music Day UK 2020 is to still connect online and celebrate music together.
