The event and workshops are part of Phonic, a project funded by Youth Music and coordinated by The Garage in Norwich.

The Wisbech activities are being delivered in partnership with Beat This and ADeC.

Nathan Jones at ADeC said: “Those who come to the workshops will get an amazing opportunity to watch demonstrations, pick up top tips and get involved. “Skills and Xidus are well known across the country and it is fantastic that they are coming to Wisbech.”

The Phonic project has also involved a series of sessions at the Thomas Clarkson Academy where students have learnt about rap, beat boxing, lyric writing and event management.
