ACCESS ALL AREAS 1 Delivered by
Funded by The Big Lottery Fund
LOOSE is a Not-For-Profit Organisation, and affiliated to The Youth Federation. ACCESS ALL AREAS will provide very low-cost music-related opportunities and training for young people UNDER 18 at The Studio, Lacey Street, Widnes WA8 7SQ. THE STUDIO is a LIVE MUSIC venue owned by LOOSE, which will also be used for recording, film-making, rehearsals, and by local theatre or dance groups. It will be used by people of all ages, but will especially benefit Under 19s. GIGS: By registering with ACCESS ALL AREAS if you are 15 or over you can get in to see the bands – but remember it is illegal to buy or drink alcohol if you are Under 18. If you are 14 or under – you will need a responsible adult with you. THE LOOSE MUSIC TEAM: The BLF grant has enabled Loose to employ 4 part-time highly qualified musicians who are or have been in touring bands, can offer tuition in a wide range of instruments, and have additional skills in film-making, recording, live sound mixing as well as experience of working with and supporting young people. ALL KINDS OF MUSIC: The Team – Amy, Ste, Stuart, and Pete – have interests and abilities in many types of music including rock, pop, funk, jazz, and experimental. SATURDAY WORKSHOPS: *11am – 2pm and 3pm – 6pm. Young people can meet up at The Studio, use the instruments at The Studio or bring their own. *Times might change. Come down by yourself, or with mates, or with your band. Drop-in 3 hour Saturday Sessions cost £2 per person per session There will sometimes be special workshops – these can be decided on by YOU. It could be anything from making instruments out of junk (and playing them!) to learning to rap or DJ or sing harmonies. On SUNDAYS: 1pm - 10pm + MONDAYS: 6pm – 10 pm you can book in advance to rehearse or do project work for £1 per person per hour. OPPORTUNITIES: If you’re not in a band, this is a good place to join or form a band. If you are already in a band, The Studio is where you can rehearse and perform. If you can’t play anything yet, you can use the instruments at The Studio and get as much help as you want to learn to play. If you are interested in the technical side – you can learn to use the lighting rig, the recording equipment, the p.a. (live sound system). PARTICIPATION: Young People who are part of the Access All Areas project can help to organise and run gigs – as well as PERFORM at them. There will be regular Open Meetings on the first Sunday of each month at 7pm starting May 2nd - ANYONE can put forward their ideas. IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT the music; it’s about YOU! YOU can help shape this whole project. 1
YOU can have fun, make new friends, learn new skills.
