Do Not Pass Go, Maida Vale Bar, West Street
Aspiring young Sheffield music and arts students are to put on a live music event tomorrow to gain experience and skills necessary for the arts industry.
The music gig ‘Do Not Pass Go’ will showcase indie/rock music from up and coming bands in the Sheffield area.
The event will take place tomorrow, Thursday, October 9, at Maida Vale Bar on West Street, Sheffield. The event will raise money for Emmaus, a Sheffield charity, which helps formerly homeless people find somewhere safe to live.
The project is being overseen by Dead Earnest Theatre, DECAT and Cape UK.
In addition to organising the event, students will achieve a Bronze Arts award, which recognises their achievements in arts-based practice.
They will then go on to apprenticeships in the creative industries.
Participant Nicola Hall says of the project: “I think it’s a brilliant opportunity to showcase my skills and it will provide me with invaluable experience of putting on an event”.
Tom Wren added: “Any money made from the gig will be donated
to Emmaus, which adds an extra dimension to the event as not only are the people participating in the event gaining experience, but it feels as if there is a real purpose to it – and that is helping previously homeless people’”
Do Not Pass Go’ will be held at Maida Vale on West Street, Sheffield. Doors open at 7pm and it will run until 9pm.
£1 on the door and all money will go to charity. Freebies available for the first 50 through the door.
