You may remember our plea to you wonderful readers to sign a petition to help prevent Access to Music from closing its Brighton campus. Well now we have excellent news as it’s been reported that Access to Music have been given a 12-month extension on their lease!
In a statement on their website they said “We are pleased to announce that Access to Music Brighton has been granted a 12-month extension to its lease at Enterprise Point. We are grateful to our landlords, to students and parents, and to our staff for their support and assistance in enabling us to reach this agreement.” 3,500 people had signed the online petition asking for help to relocate the college. This wonderful news means that students can continue their studies without worry. However, there is no word yet on what will happen after the twelve months, but we imagine that this extension will give Access to Music more time to find a suitable building to relocate so no-one misses out on an incredible opportunity to study there. Access to Music is a music college offering vocational music qualifications for school leavers and counts Ed Sheeran as one of its past students.
So thank you fabulous readers!
