Lunchtime Performances

The Soundbite Performance Programme brings a diverse range of live music to communal areas of the hospital and wards. We have been working with young musicians from Live Music Now (LMN) and musicians from the Bath Folk Club (generously funded by the Joyce Fletcher Charitable Trust) and Bath Spa University, as well as other local musicians.

Using feedback from the live musical performances it is evident that staff, patients and visitors appreciate listening to live music and it has been noted that the music helps calm nerves and anxiety for patients having treatment or visitors waiting for a relative.

Up-and-Coming Performances

13:00-13:30 Atrium or Lansdown Foyer

16th March 2018 – Paper Horse

Working together under the name Paper Horse, Zeb and Sam Haynes are brothers who grew up in a musical family on the North York Moors and have always made music together.

They are interested in the enrichment that live music can bring to those who are often unable to access it. Talented musicians in their own right, there is something special about brothers singing together and there is energy and vitality to all their performances.



If you are a musician interested in performing at the RUH or have any other questions please contact Musician in Residence, Frankie Simpkins –
