BBC Music Day

For the love of music, Nationwide

BBC Music Day 2019 will kick start its initiative to help bring music to everyone living with dementia by 2020, working with all major organisations in this field.

Hundreds of events will take place across the UK in a celebration of the power of music to change lives, including the first ever music and dementia festival co-created by people living with dementia and the first NHS Dementia Village opening its doors ahead of its official launch.

More than 70 organisations are involved so far in this unprecedented collaboration including Alzheimer’s Society, Age UK, Alzheimer Scotland, Dementia UK, NHS England, Nordoff Robbins, Live Music Now, Playlist For Life, and Utley Foundation.

They'll be working together the week of BBC Music Day to create events and take part in broadcasts celebrating the importance of music in improving the wellbeing of people living with dementia. This initiative will be reflected across BBC Radio, TV and digital.
