Platform at the Museum

Soundbox are playing live at Spitalfields Music Festival 2018!

Flyer for the event

Soundbox is our all-ability inclusive music collective that brings together disabled and non-disabled musicians aged 16–25 from East London, to make and create music using a mixture of traditional and accessible instruments and technology.

Alongside Soundbox will be performances from SMC Musicals Choir and SMC Concert Brass.

The young musicians will be taking over the V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green, performing live and creating an interactive musical installation!

Spitalfields Music Festival artists will be working with young people from Tower Hamlets through the Autumn term to create new music, inspired by the architecture and design of the V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green.

A large building with 3 sections, one tiled, one with large windows and one with columns

The museum was built in 1872 and is a colossal iron structure, with a round-arched red brick exterior inspired by contemporary German architecture.

Perhaps most striking is the fish scale pattern marble floor, laid by female inmates of Woking Gaol and the murals in the north and south exterior walls.
