Following on from Make Music Day (21st June) this Ignite celebrate the power of music and projects that are widening access to it.
Both of our speakers are involved in bringing music to unexpected places and new audiences.

They produce an award-winning live programme of music, dance and opera.
Orlando Joplin, Roman River Festival
The Roman River Festival is a vibrant, diverse & community-led performing arts festival over 3 long weekends, featuring international quality performers in informal, public & unexpected locations including disused spaces, in Colchester, rural Essex & Suffolk.
The festival is aimed at everyone in the community and specifically engages the very young, those in care homes, refugees & hard-to-reach communities. From internationally renowned classical musicians to beatboxers, choreographers and digital artists, there’s something for everyone.
**HELP US GROW OUR CREATIVE COMMUNITY**
Ignite Chelmsford is a cultural forum for those involved in Chelmsford’s creative community. Whether you are worker, volunteer, potential partner, or simply a culture loving resident – you are welcome, and we want to hear from you!
Once a month, Ignite hosts social meet-up: an inspirational gathering and an opportunity to learn how we can support one another’s work. There will be time to shout out about upcoming events, help needed or ideas in development so feel free to bring along any promo materials.
We will have a bar with soft and alcoholic drinks.
We suggest a donation of £5, but our event is intended to be accessible and open to all, so a donation is not mandatory.
