Welcome to Team WMC! Join our team and help to support music-making for all.

Wiltshire Music Centre is a professional concert hall and local charity showcasing over 150 events a year, including performances by world-renowned musicians, community groups and young artists. Each year we welcome over 60,000 people to the centre and support over 5,000 young people through our Creative Learning programme in the community, through in-schools workshops, our Zone Club for young adults with learning disabilities and as home to the two county youth orchestras. We are an ambitious and busy concert hall, and we are constantly developing new ideas to give people of all ages the opportunities to experience inspirational live music.

We are bringing together a friendly team of runners to take part in the Bath Half Marathon next year. The flat track, traffic-free course around the beautiful city of Bath is ideal for runners of all experience. We’ll be there every step of the way and will offer all the help and support you need!

By running as a part of Team WMC, you will help support our high-quality live music events and busy schedule of educational projects and music-making activities. In total, we are looking to raise £5,000 to help fund these events.

Go for it! The money raised helps the Centre do amazing work and really does make a difference
