Making Music, Changing Lives

The Beat Project has many years of experience in running charitable projects designed to use music and arts and in particular World music and arts to empower and inspire young people and communities.

Our projects include working with the most vulnerable and at risk young people in our society through music and arts to help them reach their potential in life, technical and personal skills including enjoying a better education, having more confidence and self esteem and even gaining qualifications.

We work to bring communities together through running events such as a festival, performance or community workshops and events. We also support campaigns and projects that relieve poverty both in the UK and abroad.

Heritage and Culture

The Beat Project not only love the music of Jamaica but the culture and heritage surrounding it and feel it's important to preserve, teach and document this important part of music history for current and future generations.


Projects include telling the story of the Roots of Reggae through a UK theatre tour, heritage projects telling the story of the great artists from 60's Jamaica through to current artists as well as the stories of people who were instrumental in bringing Reggae, Rocksteady and Ska to the UK.


We can offer cultural days in schools and colleges through to running world music projects for communities and people who may be disadvantaged for any reason.
