True Blue Music is a non-for-profit arts promoter with a focus on providing high quality performances in the East Midlands. Since January 2015 we have raised over £2500 to support a local amateur theatre company by promoting a range of new and established musicians at The HopBarn in Southwell and The Ballroom at the British Horological Institute in Upton.

In 2017 we have already planned 5 events at The HopBarn details below and we are in discussion to promotes other events in other parts of the East Midlands. All profits from the HopBarn events in 2017 will be for Beaumond House Hospice in Newark.

The HopBarn is able to present a quality and diverse music programme due to a continued working relationship with a number of producers in the Nottinghamshire area. 

Without such skilled and highly knowledgeable music producers, the range of events programmed would be severely restricted along with the quality of musicianship presented. 

We are therefore extremely grateful to our music partners in bringing such a diverse and quality offer to The HopBarn.

Once of our partner producers is

True Blue Music.
