Learn to Play Open day

with Olympias Music Foundation

Olympias Music Foundation (OMF), an award-winning music charity based in Manchester, is proud to invite you to our Open Day on Saturday the 29th of July on the top floor of the Manchester Museum. Come and join us between 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm on the top floor of the museum to explore the world of music.

OMF champions diversity in music, and we believe that everyone should be given the opportunity to participate in music. Our Open Day is aimed at parents of children aged 6-16 in Manchester, with a special focus on those who are either on free school meals, some form of income support, or are refugees or asylum seekers.

At the Open Day, children will get the opportunity to try out a range of instruments including violins, cellos, flutes, clarinets, saxophones, trumpets, trombones, and euphoniums under the guidance of our talented OMF teachers. There will be information available about our ‘Learn to Play’ programme and other projects, such as our community choirs. You’ll also have the chance to sign up for free music lessons for your children.

This event is free to attend and we look forward to seeing you there!

You can help us care for our collections and bring joy and inspiration to people in Manchester and beyond

As one of the UK’s largest university museums, we care for over 4.5 million objects, with an internationally-important collection spanning from Archaeology to Zoology, and nearly everything in between. We work with communities, support university students and schools in Manchester and beyond and we are a free, inclusive museum for all. But we need your help. Every object we care for, exhibition, school visit and community event comes at a cost, and you can help make the museum as ambitious and impactful as possible.
