March Area Band (MAB) Week is our annual celebration of all our Area Bands! Each year we hold performances around the city which showcase the work of all Area Bands along side other NMH ensembles.

MAB Week 2020

MAB Week took place from Monday 9th March 2020 to Thursday 12th March 2020, featuring amazing performances from all Area Bands and other NMH ensembles! As usual the week was chaotic but a lot of fun for children and staff alike who all thoroughly enjoyed the array of musical talent on display. 

Monday, 9 March: The week got off to a great start with performances from Area Band South and RHYO Connect (Wind/Brass) at Dovecote Primary School.

Tuesday, 10 March: The second day of the event featured Area Band North & North West and RHYO Connect Strings at the Bulwell Academy.

Wednesday, 11 March: Area Bands East & Sherwood performed along with the wonderful StrOrkestra.

Thursday, 12 March: The final night of MAB week took place at the Bluecoat Academy in Aspley with Area Bands Central & West along side Jazz Squad, and the percussion ensemble Bloco Notto.

As always, MAB week was a wonderful opportunity to showcase the work of all six Area Bands and provided the children with invaluable performance experience. The music hub raised £189 over these days to help promote music in the city! All funds raised through event donations go directly back into the charity programmes and ensure we are able to continue providing high class musical education across Nottingham City. If you would like to further support our charity you can find a link to our online donations portal at the top of our web page.

Once again, a massive thank you to everyone who participated and attended our week long event. We appreciate the constant support we receive from parents, schools and the local community!
