A 3-day holiday activity for young people aged 12-17!

Gig Schools offers the chance for young people to play with others in a band setting, learn a set of songs and perform together at the end of the final day.

Young people will learn how to communicate with each other as a band, learn about live music rehearsal set up and performance technique.

Led by 3 experienced tutors, we welcome anyone from beginner level to advanced, on guitars (including bass), drums or vocals.

We advise that young people have some experience playing guitar or drums, and singers of all abilities are welcome.

The performance at the end of the final day will take place at 5pm and will be open to family and friends.

Opening Times

Session: 10am-4pm
Performance: 5pm on Wednesday
