Young musicians from Rugby will showcase talents at Benn Hall concert this weekend

Young people from Warwickshire-based youth arts organisation Aspire in Arts will showcase their talents at Benn Hall in Rugby this weekend.

Friday, 13th December 2019, 10:04 am

They will perform a mix of original and contemporary cover songs with their live band plus street dance performances on Sunday.

It’s part of an ongoing youth music project, Beats, Bars and Banter, funded by The National Foundation for Youth Music with additional funding from Warwickshire County Council, and open to young people aged 11-25 from Rugby.

The young people meet every week at Hill Street Youth Centre. They have been busy writing their own original songs and learning new songs, ready to perform with their youth band.

Kirsty Lowrie, Director at Aspire in Arts said: “This is a great opportunity for the young people to showcase their talents to their parents/carers, friends and the wider community.

“They have been working really hard over the last few months to put together a fantastic set for all to enjoy. For some this is the first time they have ever performed and they are really excited about the show.”

If there are any young people or community organisations who would like complimentary tickets for the show, get in touch with Aspire in Arts as soon as possible as these tickets are very limited.

Tickets are £4 each, available on the door, with all proceeds going back to the youth project. Doors open at 6.30pm and the show starts at 7pm.

The young people meet every week at Hill Street Youth Centre where they practice their singing and songwriting and generally have lots of musical fun.
