Music for Health is pleased to announce that our annual Zest Fest at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital has been selected by the BBC as a feature of BBC Music Day this Friday 3 June. There is an action packed event programme between 10am and 4pm and all the atrium events are open to the public so come along and join in the celebrations with music, laughter, face-painting, balloons and magic. At 12pm there will be a samba parade around the hospital grounds culminating in the atrium with a fantastic sing-a-long samba Happy Birthday to mark the hospital’s 7th birthday. Music for Health has been delivering residencies and training programmes at the hospital since it opened 7 years ago and before that worked at Booth Hall Children’s Hospital. Our work continues to go from strength to strength and the BBC are highlighting the importance of our work bringing high quality music onto the wards for patients, their families and for staff members. We’re very grateful to Youth Music for funding this event and to our event partners Music in Hospitals for providing many of their musicians.
