“At World Heart Beat, ‘disadvantage’ and ‘inequality’ are left at the door – every child is valued, regardless of background. We see young faces light up as music transforms their lives and, with increasing reduction in music provision in schools, the need for our charity is greater than ever. With your support, we can unlock the creativity and confidence of thousands more young people.”
“The fact that we have been awarded this building at Embassy Gardens is a huge endorsement of our work & value. We now have space to expand, making a centre of excellence for the next 50 years. The opportunities here are so great, we can’t wait to get started…”
Will allow us to double our impact with children and young people
Our new Embassy Gardens site will extend our work at our existing Kimber Road music academy and be a centre for musical excellence, providing thousands more students with music education and our teaching capacity per year. Top quality recording studios and kit, will enable the charity to record students first EPs and teach a breadth of music industry skills such as sound engineering.
We continue our commitment to support anyone living in disadvantage
We will continue with our community-informed approach to engage young people and local residents in the Nine Elms area including those living in the adjacent communities on the Patmore, Savona, Carey Gardens, Doddington & Rollo estates, which are in the bottom 30% of most deprived areas in the UK.
The first public concert hall to open in London for over 13 years
The high quality acoustics and performance space will provide a platform for an array of artists; from students, to young people at the very start of their careers and ‘household names’, performing everything from western classical, to Indian music, jazz, and more.
We have a wonderfully supportive, expert team working on this project…
