We’re getting closer to closer to June’s First Friday which a very exciting and busy time at the First Friday office. We really are busy little bee’s!
One on June’s events is a fantastic gig in the historic courtyard of Lancaster Castle. The event is being organising by the More Music Young Leaders Team and we asked them about what opportunities More Music has for young people like themselves.
Hi, we are the more music young leaders team and we are organising the gig at the castle for June’s First Friday. We regularly organise gigs and local events for young people in the area and are very excited to have booked Luke Jackson, a young folk singer from Kent, to headline the Castle gig on the 3rd of June along with support from local artists Youth Orbit, Iona Lane, Cameron and Margaret.
At More Music, we offer lots of opportunities for young people to get involved in music, including becoming part of the team that organised this event.
If you are aged between 11 and 18 you could come to Stages on a Thursday, an open music session where you have an opportunity to learn how to play an instrument, practice, write and play in a band along with the opportunity to record what you have created.
In our stages sessions we have joined forces with Youth Orbit, a youth jazz orchestra which will give you the opportunity to do all things jazz. Or if you are in to grime, rap or anything urban, the Friday Night Project is for you. You have the opportunity to beatbox, rap, record, gig and produce you own beats, every Friday in term time, 6.30pm – 8.30pm.
Not only that but we have opportunities to be in other projects such as Bay Beat carnival band. You can be of any age or ability and join in the fun marching the streets making music and having fun. Bay beat runs on Tuesdays between 6.30pm and 8.30pm.
