Free Music Open Day

Half term started with a bang with an afternoon of free music activities for young people aged 11- 19 years, on Saturday 20th October at Bridport Youth and Community Centre. A range of tasters and workshops led by a mix of music leaders, musicians DJ’s, producers as well as a group of young volunteers.

Big Mix

B-Sharp-Big-Mix Lyme Regis Festival by the SeaB Sharp has produced 4 large scale community youth music festivals – Big Mix. These festivals have been run and delivered by young people working on all aspects of event production, mentored by a team of industry professionals. The Big Mix has showcased a diverse range of professional guest bands and musicians as well as local young talent. The event has been a fantastic success and we believe it developed a positive culture of live public music in a rural seaside community. Keep your eye out for our next large scale community event …

Out of the Box
