A group of youngsters from a youth cafe have been selected to represent the east Midlands in The Big Music Project.
Towcester’s Vision Youth Cafe has teamed up with Towcester Rockschools to host a showcase of young talent this autumn.
The Big Music Project, which is funded by the Big Lottery Fund, will see thousands of young people, aged 14 to 24, complete a music project that will benefit their community.
Vision Youth Cafe is one of 100 UK youth clubs selected as a ‘hub’ for the Big Music Project and the cafe’s champions will be hosting the showcase. They are on the lookout for local bands of 14 to 24 year olds interested in taking part.
Big Music champion, Katie Cottrell, said: “The big music project is a good opportunity to meet new friends and to get more young people involved in music.”
Stephanie Collier, youth worker at Vision, said: ““This is an amazing opportunity for our young people.
“As well as having the chance to learn new skills and gain accreditation through organising their own music project in our community, they will all have the chance to be part of the wider project, representing Towcester at the big live events with thousands of other musically-minded young people. We can’t wait to get started!”
