Just Purple Presents is a small arts organisation based in Bedford where art and communities are at the heart of all we produce. We aim to enrich the lives of communities through art and culture by producing events and workshops in Bedford that inspire and bring people together. JPP offers business advice and marketing to small local organisations and works closely with Black and minority communities.
Johanne Hudson-Lett, Creative Director and founder of Just Purple Presents has worked in the arts and media sector for over 20 years for a wide range of business and organisations, including Unilever, BBC Local Radio, UK Centre for Carnival Arts, Hear Me Out and is currently a freelance Young People’s Producer for Revoluton Arts.
Music and drama has always played a major part in Johanne’s life and running a local children’s community choir for Faith In Queen’s has spurred her on to create JPP to offer professional opportunities to those who may be from disadvantaged backgrounds. As the Musical Director for Fusion Youth Choir and Band, Johanne is responsible for the repertoire covered and ensures that the young people sing and play music of all genres, from Stevie Wonder to Stephen Sondheim.
