Our Big Gig returns to host hundreds of music events in communities across the nation this weekend with the March event at Neale Wade Academy.
A grant of £400 has been awarded to 20Twenty Productions to organise the event which sees local bands and music workshops taking place.
Organiser of Our Big Gig, which is England’s largest community music festival, is 17 year old Shannon Barrow, who said: “Our Big Gig is a great opportunity for local people to take the lead in putting on a musical event that unites their local community, celebrates home grown talent and inspires people without a background in music to get involved.
“I am very excited and I hope the town really enjoys the entertainment we are providing. We’re also happy to be supporting Cancer Research which is a recognised and credited charity close to a lot of hearts.”
On Sunday July 13 from 6pm-9pm at the Neale-Wade Academy there will be a variety of local acts including Misty Jones, Ain’t Misbehavin’, Christian Smith, The Guns in the River, Ashley Riley and more.
