Since 2002 we have become involved in as many ways as we can to support local people, clubs, activities and the local council. We are actively creating new shows and annual events, as well as providing musicians for events and new events for musicians.

- Baildon Businesses Social Group
We are an active member of this group which raises money for local charities. For several years, we have provided high quality musical entertainment ‘free of charge’ for their major events such as the charity ball. We also work alongside Wildman Computers to design and print all the posters and stationary for the events.
- Baildon Carnival
Beat It Music and it’s associates (our very keen & supportive local music teachers), provide support, equipment and musicians for the Baildon Carnival every July. In particular we must mention Bren Travis, Steve Jannetta, Andrew Parkinson, Bob Westmoorland, Iain Cunningham, Graham Bonfield, Steve Gibson and there are many more.
- Charity Gifts
Every year we provide many gifts and prizes for charity. It is ok to ask us for help, but please do not be offended if we turn down an application. Believe it or not, it doesn’t matter how many we say YES to, there are always much more requests than we could ever manage to fulfil.
- Christmas Show for Students
To encourage our music students to have something other than exams to work to, we put on several events throughout the year. Without putting any pressure on the students, the ones who want to take part are invited and we are usually inundated with people wanting to take part.
- Christmas trading
We recognise the need for all the local shops to do more regarding Christmas trading and support all the efforts that volunteers go to with village events and extended opening. If they ask to open and take part, then we open and take part.
- ‘Live at the lounge’
One of the more successful events founded by Beat It Music is Baildons Own “Live at the Lounge”. When Steve Gibson had to take a back seat, an amazing team took over and with their enthusiasm, have taken it to even higher levels. Bren, Andy Bob, Iain and Graham are fantastic team and The Baildon Club have invested in better stage facilities to support the musical performers are guests which continue to visit.
- Local Clubs & Music events
Live at the lounge is just one of the many ways that we try to assist, the local clubs, local musicians and local students who need live performances to progress. Click here for more details on Live at the Lounge.
- Music Clubs
There are many of these and we try support and promote local clubs and events. One example being music clubs, such as the ever growing Ukulele club for beginners through to advanced. We also try to provide contacts, support and assistance where we can.
- Poster display
Where and when possible we display posters in the shop for lots of local events.
We also provide a “Baildon Music Calendar”
If you would like a club event adding to the calendar, please let us know.
