Monkey Music crowned UK’s Best Children’s Music Franchise!

We would like to share some exciting news with you about Monkey Music. We have been named as the number one children’s music franchise in the UK!  This is fantastic news and we are immensely proud to have achieved this, particularly after such a challenging year. From our teachers and franchise owners to the team at Head Office, this is the result of everyone’s hard work and dedication.


From hundreds of entries across every sector, we came in at an impressive 39th place in the prestigious HSBC Elite Franchise Top 100 (EF100) table for 2022. This is the fifth time we have achieved a top 50 listing since the league table began in 2017 and it is an illustrious list that includes huge brands like Subway and Vodafone. A huge accomplishment for us and a title we can proudly hold high throughout 2022!


The ranking is based on a number of criteria, including support given to franchisees, the scale of the business, financial performance and the contribution made by businesses to the communities in which they operate. It also recognises quality and outstanding service, both things that resonate heavily in our values and sit at the heart of everything we do at Monkey Music.


Over the past year we have dealt with some of the most challenging times, but our brand never stands still, despite what’s being thrown at us. To be acknowledged in this way is wonderful. It highlights how Monkey Music has continued to make a positive impact on our families throughout the UK and play a key part in the wellbeing of pre-school children and their families.


Monkey Music is all about sharing precious time together and we pride ourselves on offering a safe, supportive and nurturing environment, where parents, carers and children meet in small groups to enjoy our interactive musical activities.


Achieving this position is a testament to everything that Monkey Music has accomplished. We are constantly raising the standards within the children’s music sector and believe this ranking will set us apart once again. It is a welcome boost and I can’t wait to see what we can achieve together in 2022!
