Music Makers 2024 Charity – Maggie’s Nottingham


The Music Makers will once again be returning to the wonderful ‘Maggie’s Nottingham’ charity for 2024.  We will raise money during our charity concerts and with events throughout the week.

Here with you

We’re here for anyone with cancer and their family and friends, whatever kind of cancer, and whatever stage they’re at.

All our support is free, and no appointment or referral is needed.

There’s also no time limit on our support, we’re here for as long as we’re needed.

Professional support

Maggie’s isn’t part of the NHS – we’re an independent charity – but our centres are beside major cancer hospitals across the UK and we have excellent relationships with our partner hospitals.

Many of our staff are NHS-trained and all our Cancer Support Specialists have expert knowledge about cancer and treatment.

Our centres also have psychologists and benefits advisors who are available for anyone with cancer and those close to them. We also work with experts who provide exercise groups, yoga, nutrition advice and much more.

How does Maggie’s help?

Our workshops, courses, one-to-one and group support help people to change the way they live with cancer.

We focus on the things that really make a difference, like money worries, help with stress and depression, managing side-effects and relationship and family support. Our support has been shown to improve physical and emotional wellbeing and to help people take control when cancer turns life upside down.

Understanding every person’s individual circumstances is central to what we do and means we can guide them to the support that will help them the most.

Our cancer support is evaluated regularly, and is informed by external research findings, our own research and advice from our external reviews.

A friendly space

We work with some of the best architects in the world to design our centres because we know that light, colour and a connection to nature can help people to feel better.

Every Maggie’s is thoughtfully designed to be calming and welcoming; a place to escape from the clinical environment of the hospital. There are no reception desks and no clocks; instead, we have comfy sofas and plenty of time.

Our centres have large open spaces for group activities and a kitchen table to chat to other people. We also make sure there are plenty of peaceful corners for quiet moments and a chance to gather your thoughts.

Other charitable work

Charity is an important part of our course ethos. We have a firm believing that the performing arts is a powerful force in charity and fund-raising.  The children on the course are proud and motivated to use their talents, ideas, and efforts to raise money for charity.   Each week of every course is dedicated to a certain charity.

We please take the time to learn about the wonderful organisations we are proud to work with.  We are always keen to work with and learn about new charities, please get in touch if you would like to suggest a charity for us to work with.
