Relaxed Performance returns to Martin Harris Centre

Relaxed Performances are returning to The Martin Harris Centre, a musical performance with audience members at its heart.

After a hiatus, the popular Relaxed Performances are returning to The Martin Harris Centre, relaunching with a special summer outing for this much-loved musical event.

Parent and child at relaxed performance at Martin Harris CentreOnce again delivered by the talented students from the Manchester University Music Society (MUMS), this year’s theme is ‘Music Around the World,’ an exploration of different music cultures, including a performance by Nigerian Gospel singer Klezmer and Irish dancing. 

Previous Relaxed Performance events have included a singalong, where parents and young children were able to meet the musicians and even join in with their own instruments, clap hands, or jangle keys to the music. Visitors were vocal in their appreciation of the event, supporting the Martin Harris Centre’s ongoing campaign to become a more accessible arts venue and part of The University’s wider social responsibility goals.

This year’s performance is no different, having been designed to be sensitive to and accepting of those who may benefit from a more relaxed environment. This might include (but is not limited to) those with autistic spectrum conditions, anyone with a learning disability, or a sensory and communication disorder. Audience members will also have the chance to meet the performers and try some musical instruments themselves.

‘Relaxed Performance: Music Around the World’, takes place on 9 June 2022, at 1.30pm, and all are welcome for FREE (simply turn up).
