A charity that provides music and arts activities for people with disabilities and additional needs is hosting a livestream to celebrate their 30th anniversary.
After the cancellation of their much-anticipated open mic event in the summer due to coronavirus, the Musical Keys night will now take place online and will celebrate music created by non neuro-typical musicians.
For nearly 30 years Musical Keys has specialised using music and creativity to engage and develop skills, through activities in schools, projects for children and adults, and music activities for older people with age-related illnesses.
Last year it saw 928 hours of music made and 711 people supported.
