In 2012 we established the LutonAid Charity (registration Number 1147211) and, as part of that, the LutonAid Music Academy (LAMA). The formal explanation is that LAMA has been established to be an enabling body with a core aim to help raise the profile and quality of music & musicians in the Bedfordshire area and to promote the Luton / Dunstable conurbation as a music hub.  

We will do this by:

  - organising showcases for bands / musicians 

 - running mentoring schemes and workshops

- encouraging networking and the exchange of info & ideas

- developing new audiences and performing opportunities

- organising events and showcases which promote the best in music performance

- developing and maintaining a database of opportunities and useful contacts

That's what we want to do. But we can't do it on our own. Please think about how you can help us to meet our objectives and contact us through this website.  



We need volunteers! We can’t run local events without the amazing work put in by our volunteers. If you fancy helping out at a local event, fundraiser or have some skills you want to share with running our mission, please get in touch via the form.

Apply For A Grant


Are you a local artist with an exciting project in the making? Let us help kickstart your project with one of our grants by telling us all about your project.

Give us as much info as you can and if we are able to fund your project we’ll be in touch to talk through the finer details. 


The LAMA Committee will discuss your application. If we are interested in your project, we will meet you to talk in more detail about your plan, how LAMA can help and what LAMA will expect in return for funding. We can also help you put together a detailed project plan. If we decide not to proceed with your application, we will let you know. The decision of the LAMA Committee is final.
