Friday Afternoons has recently received an Arts Council England Exceptional Award of £200,000 (50% of the total required) to support Aldeburgh Music’s aim of building Friday Afternoons into the leading resource and network for singing with children and young people by 2025. Hedley Swain, Area Director, South East, Arts Council England, said: “Friday Afternoons was a wonderful success as part of the Britten Centenary and we are really pleased to be able to support its continuation with an Exceptional Award. The development of Friday Afternoons will put in place the support, training and high quality materials required to ensure more children and young people in England have the chance to become involved in and enjoy singing.”
