Great press our Music Café received last time around!

Guardian reporter Helen Pidd wrote on her own Twitter account that the Music Café ‘…was the most moving thing I’ve had the privilege of reporting on in quite a few years. Bravo to Manchester Camerata’. Read the full article here.

This article follows press from both ITV and BBC News. Ann O’Connor from ITV described the Café as ‘Simple, effective and often magical‘, and the BBC put a lovely segment together which you can check here!
