Rock Academy in North Lincolnshire

The new North Lincolnshire Rock Academy was launched last April and the initial 12 week project ran from April through to July. 

The project was put together in partnership with the Music Hub, Studyparks and the Kimberley Performing Arts Centre.  

Led by father and son team community musician David Foulds and his son Jonathan, the project offered young people on the Riddings estate in Scunthorpe  the chance to learn an instrument, get involved in a band, write their own music and even perform -  the band played two gigs on one weekend, playing at the Epworth Youth Centre on Friday 12 July and then at the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe on the Saturday 14 July.  Quite a contrast in venues there!!

The project was so successful that we have decided to carry on funding it right through to March of next year.
