The Battle of the Band's music project will be running it's next OPEN MIC this Friday February 16th in Pointers at 7pm.


The last Open Mic had over 60 people in attendance and 12 young people. We had ten performances in total and over half were doing this for the first time. It was a very special evening and we are very grateful to all who supported the event.

The next event will be the same low key format - an informal, friendly safe environment for young people to participate and enjoy music they love and create. Self-confidence can't be taught, but it can be gained through learning new skills and attempting things that require courage.


Some statements from young people who took part in the March 2017 final describing how participating impacted them personally:


"I really enjoyed this, I have been doing this for the past three years and it has definitely boosted my confidence and I have new friends too" = S3 student


"I was so nervous at first, once I got into the song I felt more confident. Everyone was so supportive which definitely helped. I can't wait for the next Battle of the Bands" - S2 Student



If you have any queries please private message me on the Battle of the Bands Facebook page


Or call/text me anytime on 07554 459197. Please see poster  attached and if appropriate can you email it to any agencies or groups that involve young people in our area.


Those who take part can go forward to play in the FINAL in the Town Hall on March 16th and hopefully win prizes for their performances.



Many thanks
