presented by encore with Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival

Music Marathon

A marathon of young musical talent from 10am-6pm

A joint fundraising event for encore and Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival, supporting the next generation of musical talent in Brighton & Hove.

​encore is the fundraising network for all the young musicians supported by Brighton & Hove Music and Arts (BHMA). Over 4000 young people of all abilities are taught by us each week in every Brighton & Hove school. Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival is a charity that creates, presents and hosts 600 events with an audience of 600,000, including 20,000 people directly benefiting from our creative learning work each year. BDBF and BHMA became one organisation on 1 Jul 2017. Together we provide music and arts education, performance and touring opportunities for children and young people city-wide.
