The in2music 'Young Promoters' are doing it again! This term's 16-25 year-old students are putting on another evening of live entertainment and delicious food, whilst offering other young performers a chance to show their stuff on stage with an open mic show.
Everybody who attended the last event commented on how good the food, the sound system, the organisation and the open mic acts were. And this one is set to build on that.
In addition, the team has decided to use the event to support Youth Music's Give-a-Gig campaign -- a week-long initiative that will see 100 or more gigs around the country raise funds and awareness for Youth Music -- one of the country's leading supporters and funders of youth music projects, including our own in2music programme.
"I hadn't known about Youth Music before coming on this course and if this is the kind of project that the funds are being raised for, it feels really good to be able to do something to give back to it" - said an in2music student.
The young team are hoping to raise £500 -- partly through ticket sales and the rest by donations and other fund-raising initiatives. They've pledged to donate at least 50% of all ticket sales which means every £5 ticket sold, £2.50 will go directly to the Youth Music charity!
The students have done all they can to make sure every ticket-holder gets value-for-money, and have made this an all-inclusive event, meaning that even the food is included in the ticket price. But this is where we need your help.
Anyone wishing to donate can do so through our website at https://glypt.cloudvenue.co.uk/giveagig. Or you can donate during the event. Your donation will help Youth Music invest in life-changing music-making projects nationwide. The money is spent where it's needed most: invested directly in over 350 projects across England. That's around 75,000 children and young people regularly making music each year.
You can also help us by spreading the word and encouraging as many of your friends, fans and family members to buy tickets and come and support the show. We look forward to welcoming you! - in2music Young Promoters
