Grand Welsh Music Challenge Progress

0/1000 musical performances


Why Grand Welsh Music?

One of the things we have missed most in the last year is live music, singing and the connection that comes from the collective experience of gigs and choral singing. Many of us have experienced loneliness and have struggled with our mental health and the lack of stimulation.

Wales is the land of song and we want to celebrate this as part of our Grand Week in Wales. We hope to be able to lift the nation’s spirits by joining together to celebrate and show off whatever musical talents we have. This is an opportunity for musicians from all across Wales, of all ages, skills and abilities, to be part of Grand Welsh Music.

What is the Grand Welsh Music challenge?

We want to collate 1000 musical performances, whether that be singing, playing an instrument or any other musical talent you have. Each person makes a performer to add to our 1,000 total! We would like to hear music and see performances from a wide range of genres of music and from every corner of our country.

Our Grand Welsh Music challenge will culminate in certain participants being selected to take part in creating a remotely recorded, collaborative rendition of the Welsh National Anthem, coupled with a video montage of the other activities that have taken place across the week.

How can you get involved?

Joining our #grandwelshmusic challenge couldn’t be simpler!
Simply create a video of your performance and share on social media and tag Nanny Biscuit and use the hashtags #grandweekinwales & #grandwelshmusic. We will share them on our social media channels and website, with the aim of showcasing musicians from all across Wales!

One of our partner organisations, YAB in Wrexham, are putting this event on!

A celebration and fundraising day for the Grand Week in Wales with a piano-thon!
The circumference of Wales is close to 1000 miles, and as part of a huge collaboration to raise money towards A Grand Week In Wales, the members of our community will be playing a Crane and Sons piano which was built in Wrexham nearly 100 years ago, continuously for 1000 minutes during St David’s Day! From 8 am to 10.30 pm.

All you need to do now is set yourself a target and get as many people involved as possible. You could also use this as an opportunity to fundraise for Nanny Biscuit or a local charity of your choice.

All monies raised for A Grand Week in Wales are distributed in the following way;

20% to Nanny Biscuit to combat food poverty, isolation and loneliness, with the remainder evenly distributed between our brilliant national partner organisations;
