The Bexley Young Musician of the Year Awards is one of a series of projects for young people promoted by Rotary up and down the country. This particular event is organised jointly by three of the Rotary clubs in the London Borough of Bexley and culminates in a biennial Awards Concert
History of Bexley Young Musician
Back in 1997 Mike Hopley of Crayford Rotary Club took up the Rotary challenge to run a Young Musician of the Year Awards scheme for the Borough of Bexley and asked the Bexley, Erith, Danson and Sidcup clubs to get involved.
The first concert was held on the 20 September 1998 at the Rose Theatre, Rose Bruford College, and subsequent events have been staged every two years, switching to the Townley Theatre in 2008. We were back at Rose Bruford College in 2023.
Over 20 years later the Awards continues to be run by Rotarians. It's as exciting today as it was then and shows the best of local musical talent, enabling young musicians to perform in front of experienced, professional judges who will also provide vital critical analysis of their skills. This exciting project offers a brilliant showcase to talented young musicians in the borough. Long may it continue.
