Music Pass: a gift for future music lovers

Music Pass

Welcome to the Music Pass

Imagine introducing your little one to the joy of live music from the very start. With our new Music Pass, that’s exactly what you can do. This £25 gift voucher is our way of welcoming the newest members of our community into the wonderful world of music. We believe as many people as possible should have the wonder of music in their lives.

What is the Music Pass?

The Music Pass is a special £25 voucher that can be spent on family-friendly concerts, gigs, and classes. It’s our gift to every baby born in the North East and Cumbria over the last year, helping to nurture future music lovers from the very start.

Why are we doing this?

We believe that music has the power to bring joy, create new human connections, and make our lives better. By giving families with new babies access to live music, we’re hoping to plant the seeds for a lifetime love of music. This is what we’re all about: music lives and grows at The Glasshouse International Centre for Music.

What can the credit be spent on?

Right now, you can use the Music Pass for events including:

  • The Snowman and other family-friendly concerts
  • Interactive music classes for kids

Our list of eligible events will grow, so keep an eye on our website for updates. We’ll also send you an email when new opportunities become available. There’s no rush: you will have 10 years to use our gift.

How does it benefit families with new babies?

The Music Pass provides an opportunity for families to bond over live music experiences. It’s an easy way to introduce your little one to the magic of music, with events and classes designed to be fun and engaging for all ages. About 250,000 babies were born in the North East and Cumbria over this year.
