Outreach activities

esmee fairbairnXuefei’s visit to BMS included informal performances for children at St Michael’s Primary School, Ravenhill Road, a special coffee concert for the Alzheimer’s Society as part of their Volunteer Week, and an outdoor performance for inmates and staff at HMP Hydebank Wood. We are indebted to the Esmee Fairbairn Trust for funding to support these outreach activities.
