Dukes calls out for Musical Youth

John Freeman
Calling all young bands, singers, djs and mcs – The Dukes needs you!

Opportunities for young people aged 13-19 to perform at a new series of live music nights in Lancaster are available now.

Two gigs which have already taken place at Barton Road Youth and Community Centre have proved a hit and there are four more to follow including an Indie/Rock Weekend on 16-17th March and an Urban Night on April 20 both at DT3.

DT3, in Moor Lane, is home to The Dukes Creative Learning Department which is being supported by Lancaster City Council’s diversionary activities funding to organise the events aimed at keeping young people off the streets.

Organisers are now looking for young performers to take part in future gigs. Anyone interested will be invited to attend a workshop led by More Music to get them performance ready.

This is a great opportunity for new bands, emerging artists, djs and mcs to pick up tips and perform in front of other young people.

• Anyone interested should email creative learning director, Guy Christiansen, at
