Music for Youth's Coronation Bandstand Project will see thousands of young musicians perform on bandstands in public parks across England from 6 – 8 May 2023, enabling music and young people to play an important part in marking this historic occasion. ​Participation in music events like this supports young people in their development, well being and improves social skills.

Music for Youth will fund and support Music Education Hubs and Local Cultural Education Partnerships regionally to host multiple events on prominent bandstands, showcasing the brilliance of young musicians performing all styles and genres of music. Other performing arts will be on show, including dance, musical theatre and spoken word as well as a performance of a specially commissioned fanfare from a young composer.

If you would like to take part there are opportunities and bursaries available. Please visit for more information.
