Support Us

The Sound of the Streets creates free and accessible events where people can gather, listen, dance, sing and make music themselves. The 2022 festival had a focus on education and aimed to inspire young people with street music and encourage them to play instruments, join bands and experience live music. As a not for profit organisation, we need your help. Please consider supporting us via our JustGiving page. Donations of any size are all greatly appreciated!
