‘On The Edge’ has been through a period of review following its recent quick dip in the water with Making Music’s Adopt a Composer scheme. We’ve extended our lotoby-and-chris-starbucks-20thdec2016cal community partner working and created music workshops and winter events at Starbucks Worcester and Five Ways that will develop further in 2017. We’ve also been awarded a Next Generation grant from Birmingham City Council and have set to work on exciting plans that kick off in 2017.


If you’re reading this before Christmas Eve there is still time to follow ‘On The Edge’ Starbucks projects via Neighbourly.com and help us fund our music making activities in local communities in Birmingham and Worcester. No costs, just create a login, search for us using the term ‘On The Edge’ and hit the follow button. You can also follow us img_20161221_143514on Facebook and Twitter and mention us with the hashtag #redcupcheer. And if you fancy becoming one of our volunteers please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Our first events in 2017 are:

  • 27 January, 2-3pm at Starbucks Five Ways, Birmingham, and
  • 28 January, 2-4pm at Starbucks The Cross, Worcester.



On the 20th December ‘On The Edge’ had its 5th Anniversary. Hard to believe we’ve been running for 5 years, how time flies. We’d like to thank all our supporters, funders, partners, schools, teaching and performing musicians and the children and young people that have participated in our community workshops and weekly music activities. Here’s to the next 5 years.


On behalf of everyone at ‘On The Edge’ have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
