Criminal Justice Settings

Innovative vocal based programmes engaging with those within the criminal justice system

Building on the successful 18 year partnership between Snape Maltings and HMP Warren Hill we deliver a singing based programme to men currently serving custodial sentences at HMP Warren Hill.

The multi faceted ‘Singing Prison’ programme includes singing, song writing and performance and aims to engage a whole establishment under one singing initiative. Working closely with officers and staff members the programme will develop new and existing transferable and musical skill vital for rehabilitation and successful reintroduction into our communities.
