"I hope that singing en masse will remind us all that music, especially vocals, can bring everyone together whether in unison or harmony. We must not let recent troubles make us fearful of using our voices"
- Sir Tim Rice, supporting carols in the street

Music therapy plays a significant role at GOSH creating fun, interactive musical connections and building on these to achieve longer term goals.

Many children at GOSH are seperated from their loved ones whilst undergoing treatment for serious illnesses.  When they sing from the ward during this event, they will sing in the knowledge that their families are singing with them. 



Demelza provides hospice care for children and young people with serious or terminal conditions.

Demelza uses music therapy to help children and their families to express emotions that are too difficult to put into words.

We are delighted to know that children and families supported by Demelza will be taking part in Carols on the Street 2021.

Spread a Smile partners with NHS hospitals to enhance play provision and provide critically ill children with access to enhanced play and entertainment provision in hospital during some of the darkest times of their lives.  

The Spread a Smile Choir was created to support those seriously ill and hospitalised children and teenagers who love music and simply want to sing during our entertainer visits. "Every time a child sings we can see the happiness and escapism it brings, easing the difficult realities of painful treatment and hospital stays." The Choir allows young patients the opportunity to have fun with their friends and siblings which in turn improves their wellbeing, reduces anxieties, builds self esteem and encourages peer support.

"I am truly blessed to know the children and their extraordinary families and we are all very excited to be involved in such an uplifting and joyful event this December." Collette Spinner - Choir Lead

Youth Music believe that every young person should have the chance to change their life through music.

 Yet research shows that many can’t because of who they are, where they’re from or what they’re going through.

 The insights, influence and investment in grassroots organisations and to young people themselves made by Youth Music enable more 0–25-year-olds to make, learn and earn in music.
