Welcome to BAMT Belfast 2020!

Our conference at Queen’s University Belfast from 3rd – 5th April 2020 is drawing near. The weekend will give us many opportunities to explore our theme of ‘Open Ground: Music Therapy in Collaboration and Exchange. We have a fantastic programme planned, full of presentations, roundtables, workshops and poster presentations – and with plenty of social opportunities too. We look forward to sharing the conference time with you.

Conference Presenters

All submission authors were contacted regarding the outcome of their presentations in November and December 2019 and with a final request for amendments during mid-January. If you have not received these communications, please get in touch with the Event Manager as soon as possible.

Some of you may work in workplaces with a high level of IT security. If you think your system could quarantine our emails or send them directly to spam or junk, please make sure that you have BAMT email addresses as a ‘safe sender’ as we will be sending further emails to presenters right up to the conference.

Conference Programme

The conference programme is now available on BAMT website. We have also loaded a more accessible format onto this page, which you can download and print should you wish.

Conference Booking

We have a limited number of late tickets now available for the conference. Clink the below button to book soon to avoid disappointment. 


Paper copies of the book of abstracts - are we ready to save the environment?

To make our conference more environmentally friendly we hope to cut down on paper copies of the book of abstracts as far as possible.  We have developed an excellent conference app on which you will find all the abstracts, the full programme, and all room details etc. If you would like a printed copy of the book of abstracts, please select this at the time of booking. There will be an additional charge of £5 for printed copies. The conference app will be launched at the start of February.

If you have any questions about registering online, please do contact us via email or call 020 7837 6100.
