BCMG has an all year round out-of-school programme of creative music workshops for young people comprising Music Maze, Zigzag Ensemble and Creative Composing Lab. Young people progress from one to the other based on their age. The content of the workshops frequently links to music from BCMG concerts to which young people receive free or discounted tickets. We also present a series of imaginative family concerts and drop-in workshops.
