Our Big Gig

Project Director: Professor Peter Wells
Project Duration: 2013-2014

Our Big Gig was a community music celebration which took place across the UK from the 11th to the 14th July 2013. This annual event aims to bring communities together to celebrate their local musical talents and get more people involved in music making.

All Our Big Gig events are organised by local volunteers on the ground in their communities with support from Superact’s Regional Managers. All events were at least four hours long, free to attend and open to all, providing attendees with opportunities to participate in a range of musical activities.

The evaluation explored how effective the organisation of the events had been and the impact it had on community participation.

The project team also included Tom Shore, Lucy Taylor and Mike Foden.
