There is currently no space in Kent, available to the whole community, specifically designed and solely dedicated for music performance and education. There is also a lack of space in the county in which music therapy practitioners can work. All this impacts negatively on opportunities for high quality music performance, music education, the training of talented young musicians and opportunities for using music to support some of the most vulnerable in our society.


"More than a Concert Hall" will create centre for music, with a concert auditorium, rooms for rehearsals and workshops and public areas for exhibitions. The centre will also include a music therapy suite. With these facilities and in partnership with music organisations of international repute, Canterbury Christ Church University will be able to offer a wide range of opportunities to people of all backgrounds to engage in music.
