Sunderland’s Pop Recs Ltd. may still be dusting off their paint brushes and purchasing job lots of elbow grease after their recent move to new premises on High Street West, but they’re not resting on their laurels. The city’s cultural hub is continuing to provide excellent facilities and events for those looking to engage with music and culture in the area, and they’re kicking off the summer holidays with a not-to-be-missed week(ish) of workshops for young people aged 14-21 interested in the music biz.

Taking place from Tuesday 14th until Friday 17th August, their Gig In A Week programme will provide an opportunity for young people to learn from some of the region’s best and most hardworking musicians. Attendees will get the chance to write songs with Field Music’s Peter Brewis and Beccy Young (aka This Little Bird), discover how to write about music and work with a designer to create posters, plus join Field Music’s David Brewis to learn about rehearsing and live sound. The programme will culminate with a gig where attendees can put their new skills into practice.

As with most things Pop Recs Ltd. do, Gig In A Week is an inclusive and relaxed initiative, aimed at young people with a burgeoning interest as well as a burning passion for music, and completely free to attend. Get in touch to sign up.
