Gloucestershire music charity announces new chair

Gloucester-based charity The Music Works has appointed a new chair of trustees.

Caroline Norbury MBE has recently taken up the position at the charity that helps young people living in challenging circumstances to reach their full potential through music,

Caroline attended The Music Works' recent launch event at The Hub in Gloucester where she received the prestigious Queen's Award for Enterprise through Social Mobility on behalf of the charity.

The Music Works is delighted that Caroline has accepted the position of chair of trustees.

Deborah Potts, CEO of The Music Works, said: "Caroline is joining us at a really exciting time in our development as we launch our new inclusive music hub in Gloucester.

"I feel certain that she is going to play a huge part in leading us to become a national centre for inclusive music, making a difference to thousands more young people's lives."

Caroline established Creative England, the not-for-profit agency which supports England's creative industries, in 2011 alongside founding chairman John Newbigin.

She is dedicated to championing the creative industries across the UK and believes that we must never stop shouting about the power of our arts, culture, and creativity to build a more cohesive and tolerant society.

She said: "I am so proud to join The Music Works charity as their new chair of trustees and am looking forward to what we can achieve together to support young people from all walks of life through the power of music."
