New Note encourages people to use music for their recovery from alcohol and drug addiction.
  • We jam: providing a safe space to try out musical ideas without judgement.
  • We compose: collectively composing music to help people rediscover their skills
  • We perform: concerts where our musicians showcase their wonderful talents, encouraging the public to understand why it’s important to help people to stay sober.

New Note Orchestra



Every Tuesday between 7-9pm at St Luke’s, 64 Old Shoreham Road, Brighton, BN1 5DD.


We have beginners and experienced players. No musical training is required.

Musical Exercises…

We believe no-one can play a wrong note. Everyone gets creative.

Having a jam…

One person starts with a grain of an idea, we then turn it into something beautiful.


Every 12 weeks or so, we showcase our newly composed music for the public.

“Being part of a recovery group or community creates something that is greater than the individuals involved. In music, it creates something moving and powerful. In recovery, it creates something that is more powerful than addiction.”

Kirby Gregory Care Director, Action on Addiction.
