Radio 3's Musical Map of Britain
Sara Mohr-Pietsch and Petroc Trelawny

Throughout 2013 on Radio 3 Breakfast we’ve been running an ambitious project to map musical Britain. So far we have the UK covered in over 2000 pins reflecting our choral singing, music for our seas and coastlines, Baroque music (our focus during Radio 3’s Baroque Spring), Brass Bands, British music, music festivals, music clubs and societies.
We’re now turning our attention to the UK’s wealth of youth music groups – orchestras, bands, choirs – and we’re asking you to send us the information for brown pins to adorn the map below. We also want specific music suggestions which we can play on Radio 3 Breakfast.
As for the map itself, you can filter by each category via the drop-down box, and you’ll find that lots of pins have links to useful websites and to a series of photo galleries on the Breakfast homepage.
Let’s get mapping musical Britain!
