Between 2017-2020, Wiltshire Music Centre is the lead partner on Celebrating Age Wiltshire (CAW), a county-wide project, delivering arts and heritage events in community settings for frail, vulnerable older people unable to access concert halls or theatres. This project is made possible by a £99,931 Arts Council England grant and support from the Health & Wellbeing funds from 6 of Wiltshire Council’s Area Boards.
CAW offers arts, culture and heritage activities for older people in their own community settings in 6 local areas across Wiltshire (Corsham, Royal Wootton Bassett, Calne, Trowbridge, Amesbury and Salisbury). Rebecca Seymour, our Project Coordinator for CAW is working alongside arts and community organisations to deliver accessible high quality arts events for those who may feel vulnerable or isolated from their community.
I am struggling today but you have helped to get me "into the day". Thank you.Celebrating Age Event Participant

At this current time, we are unable to deliver any live Celebrating Age Wiltshire events. We hope you enjoy the recorded online concerts and we look forward to bringing you further activity at a time when we are able to meet again in person.
Thank you for the concert. I loved it and have watched several times. Thanks again to you and the team. Hope it's not too long till we meet in person.Trowbridge participant, May 2020
I really enjoyed this and enjoyed the music, singing along with every song bar one. Her (Frankie’s) breathing is so good just to be able to sing one song after another! The concert is perfect for my age.CAW Audience Member, May 2020
