Resources

Accessible, free materials with historical and contemporary information relating to migration and shared values to life in the UK

Community Sound System:


We have a small sound system, ideal for community events, with groups of up to 4 or 5 musicians. If your event is related to our work, with musicians from migrant and/or refugee backgrounds, equipment can be borrowed free of charge. We will if possible provide staff to set up and manage. You will need to credit us on your publicity material and arrange transport.

Please note, as a volunteer organisation, we do not have funds to cover all year round insurance, and take it out for specific events when needed. As such you will need to make sure we are covered with your event insurance when using the sound system.

You will be liable for any damages. Please email for details.




Below materials are free to use, but please credit 'Best Foot Music' if you use them. A link to our site would be much appreciated. If you have something to contribute or discuss, please contact music@bestfootmusic.net.
