Big Music Project launches in Leyburn for young people

The Big Music Project.

The Big Music Project, billed as a fantastic opportunity for young people to organise a music event in their community, has launched in Leyburn.

Participants will work together to research, plan, promote and evaluate their event.

But it’s not just about the music – the event can include a range of art forms such as dance and visual arts and don’t forget, the backstage and technical roles are really important too.

This story continues after the adverts:


As part of The Big Music Project participants will work towards a qualification and be part of a national network of young people who can access a range of special events, industry professionals and work experience opportunities.

The project is aimed at supporting 15 young people aged 14 to 19 years old.

Young People aged 11 to 13 and 20 to 25 are also welcome to join in the project.

The project will starts this month and runs through to March 2018.

Meetings take every Wednesday from 4.30pm to 6pm at Leyburn Arts and Community Centre.

Young people enrolling must try their best to commit to all sessions.

The project is free  – a small  contribution for one-off optional activities may be needed.

Help with transport may be available.
