As we all do our bit to help keep our communities safe and healthy, The Met has to close its doors (temporarily) to the public. This goes against everything we aim to be; inclusive, welcoming and packed with music, creativity and happy people. Which means we’re looking ahead to when we can re-open, and what we can do in the meantime to keep reaching people.
Support us and together we will bring more creativity to Bury
We have always viewed culture as key to people’s mental health and wellbeing. Our work revolves around our desire to ensure as many people as possible can access culture and have a space where they can be and feel creative. We usually do this through our gigs, recording studio, outreach work and workshops, but 2020 has demanded we rethink our approach.
We’ve become pioneers of the digital livestream through our partnership with United We Stream, transferred all of our existing workshop groups online, run numerous support sessions for struggling artists, and created new sessions specifically for children aged 4-10 to support them (and parents!) with homeschooling. In 2021 we want to take all of this experience and combine it with our usual programme of great live shows. But we need your help to do this.
As a charity, our work relies on the support of the public, and your donations help us to push our boundaries further and continue to expand our work. Members are absolutely integral to this, and are very much a part of our journey to achieving our ambitious goals.
