AFTER the huge success of the recent Big Music Project at the West End Centre with local charity Step by Step, young people involved will now take to the stage once again.
They will be demonstrating their talents at the charity’s Sleep Out Challenge on Friday, June 23, at Aldershot Town FC and all are welcome to come and enjoy.
On April 21, The Big Music Project, co-hosted by Step by Step and the West End Centre, culminated with a hugely successful performance by young people.
The project ran for 11 weeks from January to April and was packed full of opportunities for young people to be coached, mentored and taught by renowned practitioners and musicians such as Anna Neale, Ricky Tart, Chris Redmond and James Tanch.
The project focused mainly on lyrics and song writing while also supporting the emergence of other talents such as photography and music production.
The project has impacted all of the young people involved and hopefully inspired them to further explore and develop their talents, skills and interests within the music industry.
The success of the showcase performance was further confirmed when a local charity, Forward 4 Wiz, who support young musicians, approached the West End Centre with a further three months of funding.
This will allow young people to develop as a group and individuals under the guidance of a practitioner, and build towards their performance at the Sleep Out event.
Step by Step are inviting the public to join them at the Sleep Out Challenge to enjoy the performances from the Big Music Project, as well as a performance from up and coming local singer Jack Luke Mason who’s video of him singing in Camberley went viral, leading to a live performance on Eagle Radio.
Sleepers will also enjoy made to order wood fired pizzas and a feature film shown on the stadium’s huge pitch-side screen.
All before settling down on the stadium terraces for the night to Sleep Out to raise awareness and funds for young people who are facing homelessness.
Sleep Out 2016 raised more than £6,000 to support Step by Step’s work with young people facing hard times.
