Happy Birthday to 'Big Noise'
10 Years old in 2018

Big Noise, Raploch, Stirling, Scotland 

 Big Noise is run by the charity Sistema Scotland, and transforms the lives of children living in disadvantaged communities. The symphony orchestra, and learning a musical instrument, are the tools used to equip children with a range of social and life skills: confidence, resilience and aspiration.
Big Noise works across four communities, with more than 2,500 children, from birth to adulthood, in school and nursery, after school and in the holidays. It enables children to reach their full potential, and to bring about permanent social change in their communities.
It was started by Richard Holloway, who went to Venezuela to see how Sistema worked and then  set about making it all happen initially in Raploch, Stirling.
