Wasserman Music and Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy announce the return of Music Mudder for 2022

Leading talent agency Wasserman Music and the UK’s largest music therapy charity, Nordoff Robbins, have announced the return of Music Mudder, a music-inspired endurance event that will see teams from across the music industry take on an adrenaline pumping obstacle course to raise vital funds for Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy.

Taking place on Friday 2 September at Camelot Events’ legendary obstacle course in the picturesque woodland of Dorking, Surrey, this year’s Music Mudder follows off the back of a hugely successful inaugural event in 2019, where £64,000 was raised in aid of Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy.

Nordoff Robbins believes that everyone should have access to the value of music. Its trained music therapists work with children and adults affected by life limiting illness such as dementia, learning disabilities including autism, physical disability and mental health issues. Through the power of music, trained therapists connect with some of the most isolated people in our society. Nordoff Robbins’ music therapists work with over 270 schools, hospitals, hospices and care homes, as well as providing sessions from its centres across the UK.

Running in groups of 10, teams will tackle challenging obstacles on the ultimate UK mud run including the Bog of Doom, Rat Crawl, Kamikaze and River Crossing, whilst also competing to raise as much money as possible for Nordoff Robbins. Alongside the main event, there will be live music, a selection of food vendors, refreshing drinks and a celebratory atmosphere.

Sandy Trappitt, Head of Partnerships, Nordoff Robbins, said: “Partnering with the fantastic team at Wasserman Music, we invite our friends from across the music world to team-up with colleagues and join us for a packed day of entertainment, adventure and world-class obstacles, all to support Nordoff Robbins in our mission to provide music therapy, helping people to connect and communicate. See you on the course!”

Lucy Putman, Agent, Wasserman Music, said: “After the success of the inaugural event in 2019, we are so excited to be bringing back Music Mudder this year – bigger, better and muddier than ever before. Whether teams are competitive or joining just for fun, this is a great way to beat the post-festival season blues, whilst raising funds to help Nordoff Robbins keep offering their amazing music therapy and promote the value of music for all people in society.”

The event takes place on Friday 2 September 2022, 10am – 5pm at Camelot Events Ltd obstacle course, Henfold Lakes, Henfold Lane, Dorking, Surrey, RH5 4RW. Places can be booked via lucy.putman@teamwass.com
