Make Music Day is a huge celebration of music making around the world on 21 June – this year, it’s a Wednesday!  It is a unique event, open to anyone who wants to take part – old or young, amateur, or professional - and just about every musical style is represented. 


Every year people and organisations from 1,000 towns and cities in 120 countries create events to share their music.  All Make Music Day events are free to watch.

On Wednesday 21 June, Crawley Town Centre BID is bringing to you a line up of fantastic local musicians... solo artists, duos, buskers, bands, musicians and much more, right across the town centre from 11am through until the evening. See the latest line-up below.

Live music is happening across town in key sites and stages:
