Mind Your Music and Coronavirus

In 2020 and 2021, we had to change the way we met, made music, performed, and stayed in touch and supportive as a group. For most of the time, we had to move everything online. During the summer months, when restrictions were eased, we met outdoors and played music together - socially distanced - in Bristol's parks. Since then, we have been meeting in small groups at Factory Studio.


















For as long as physical meetings remained difficult because of the coronavirus emergency, Mind Your Music continued to run a programme of online activities, workshops, rehearsals and productions via our Zoom meetings. We had music, poetry and art workshops, a christmas karaoke party and a full-length gig!
