After a first outing in 2015, BBC Music Day returns on Friday 3 June 2016 and they are looking for groups to be involved!  Last year, the very first BBC Music Day featured over 20 live music events, including a 73-mile musical relay from dawn to dusk along Hadrian’s Wall, a special educational needs and disability youth concert with The British Paraorchestra in Bristol, and a record-breaking musical event in Cardiff, reaching an audience of over 15 million on TV, Radio and online.  The event is returning on Friday 3rd June 2016 ​with the theme of 'learning to play an instrument', from the most simple to the more complex!
