We’re really proud of the impact our work has on the people we work with.

In 2018/19:

  • 7670 young people engaged with Severn Arts and partners each week
  • Over 3000 more young people took part in events
  • 151 schools received weekly music tuition from Severn Arts
  • 204 schools engaged with Severn Arts in other ways such as the Big Sing, signing up to Charanga
  • 84 schools signed up for whole class instrumental tuition


    Playing in the Severn Arts orchestras was one of the most fun experiences of my life – without them I wouldn’t be the same person and I wouldn’t have met some of my best friends.

    I cannot stress enough how valuable and insightful the support and commitment that Severn Arts have provided our English, Media and Culture students has been. Severn Arts have listened to both University colleagues and students in order to provide opportunities for our students to flourish.

    Some of our best moments are illustrated in our video stories shown below. 

    We know we need to do more to demonstrate the worth of what we do. We intend to create an evaluation framework that will ensure our sustainability in the future and guarantee a creative education for all children and young people and opportunities for artists and others to engage in. We are establishing more meaningful communication channels and options for feedback, measuring our performance against key priorities for the region in terms of economic growth and regeneration and how what we offer can contribute to the overall prosperity of Worcestershire communities.
