PARTY AT THE BAND STAND
Working with the Big Music Project (based at MyPlace), we planned a music event at the bandstand at Walsall Arboretum and encouraged members of the public to attend. Our event was named "Party at the Bandstand", which took place on 24th August 2017 from 3pm to 5pm.
Throughout the afternoon, young people showcased their singing, dancing and musical talents and other young people from the public also participated. Alongside the performances, we also had a tuck shop and samosas on sale. Although the event was organised within four weeks, we had a great afternoon and we were able to reflect on what we did in a debrief meeting.
We were very grateful to the council for allowing us to use the bandstand in order to provide a space for young people to showcase their talents.
