Zone Club is our monthly club for young adults aged 16+ with learning disabilities. It is a brilliant session where young people can create their own music, lyrics, dance and films supported by expert musicians and music therapists. Whether it's rapping, singing, songwriting, music tech, conducting or drumming - our Zone Clubbers take the lead!

It's been a really exciting year for the Club - here's why...

  • 40 young people attended over 50 hours of music and dance activity on the WMC stage, with lights, live band, cameras and instruments
  • Clubbers launched their debut album Zone Club's Greatest Hits, which was premiered on BBC Wiltshire. Recorded at Wiltshire Music Centre, the CD features smash hit songs Plankton! And Cool as an Ice Cube and is on sale now to help raise funds to support the sessions
  • The Club won 2 Awards from Wiltshire Council and the High Sheriff of Wiltshire for valuable services to the community. Thank you!
  • Zone Club opened the 2017 Bradford Roots Festival with a brilliant performance where everyone got a chance to solo and MC.
  • Clubbers also performed at our Special Schools Festival and with members of the OAE
  • We became a partner of the South West Open Youth Orchestra, and one of our Zone Clubbers soon became a member
  • We continue to build links with the University of the West of England and welcome their trainee music therapists

The staff are really brilliant at encouraging the participants to join in and reach their potential. With their regular encouragement he has gained confidence enormously and is now happy to sing and perform independently on stage in front of a large audience. This improved assertiveness and self confidence has without a shadow of a doubt helped him to cope successfully with his move out into independent living. He loves the freedom to choose what he wants to do.
