Deal Music & Arts is creating a series of bespoke films on music. We want to make sure that music can be made by professional musicians, especially musicians either locally based or with connections to Deal Music & Arts and/or in special spaces that are important to the musical infra structure of East Kent. We are releasing these films systematically and will ensure that everyone on our Mailing List knows the details first.

Deal Music & Arts wishes well to all its fellow arts organisations, musicians and artists at this increasingly challenging time. We so look forward to a moment when we can bring live music to East Kent once again!
