Huddersfield is home to the British Music Collection, an extraordinary archive of scores and recordings of British art music from the 20th and 21st centuries. Kept at Heritage Quay, the archive service of the University of Huddersfield, the collection includes around 40,000 scores and the work of over 3,000 composers. Join us for a tour of this incredible resource, with a chance to look behind the scenes, explore scores written by women and gender minority composers, and listen to recordings. Whether you are looking for repertoire or keen to learn more about the history of music, this tour offers a chance to get familiar with one of the most important music collections in the country.
