Welcome to BIMM Life

As we kick off the year in style, greetings to all who are returning to BIMM and an especially warm hello to all who are coming to BIMM for the first time. Welcome to BIMM Life – brought to you by our very own journalism students and the Careers and Industry team.

Here you will find all manner of great things – news about the best gigs and events around town and what’s happening here at BIMM. Our alumni are now working across all areas of the music industry, so we’ll be bringing you updates and plenty of tips to help you realise your own ambitions – whether as a performing musician or in one of the many other roles in today’s thriving and fast-changing industry.

Keeping a finger on the pulse of the industry is what we are all about, so we'll give you an insight into the inner workings of the modern music business. 

We’ll introduce you to the best local venues, pubs, clubs and eateries – many of whom have a special discount for BIMMers.

As BIMM Life comes to life we’d love to hear your ideas for things you’d like to be covered alongside the news, listings, contacts etc
If you fancy seeing your work in print or online, the editorial team will be delighted to receive your submissions and the very best pieces will be published with credits. Been to see a new film? Send us a review! Discovered a fabulous new café? Tell us all about it!

I’m personally celebrating the start of my 11th year at BIMM and during that time it’s been an extraordinary privilege to work with the most talented team of BIMM staff and, most especially, with the best and the brightest of the music industry of the future – that’s you, our students!

Have a great start to the term and I’ll look forward to seeing you all soon
