The East Coast Churches and Community Music Festival


The East Coast CCMF was founded in 2008 and has grown to become a major event in the East Coast Calendar. It is a community based organisation working with community and church organisations, schools, local authority music services, private music teachers, singing and choral societies to provide opportunities for public performances and to enhance life-style opportunities for all ages through the Arts and especially music making.
