About us

Mind the Gap is an inclusive music group for people with mental and physical health issues in Norwich. We provide a friendly, safe environment to socialise with fellow musicians, play music, form bands, improve skills on guitar, bass, drums, songwriting, vocals and performance.

We support new ideas and positively promote improved wellbeing through participation in music and creative processes.

We are currently shut for summer break but will be back on the 26th September 2018

We meet every Wednesday at Plug Studios Norwich from 1pm til 5pm.  Drop in and get involved. As well as having 3 rooms of music. We also offer one on one tuition and bespoke sessions. If you can’t get to us, we can come to you for One on One lessons.

We are super pleased to announced that Our photo came 2nd in the Norfolk Community Foundation Photo Challenge.  The judges said “Second place went to Mind the Gap music group, which is an inclusive music group for people with mental and physical health issues in Norwich. The picture showed an action shot of everyone getting their instruments together.  Mind the Gap will win £300 for coming second”
