YMCA Digital do loads for the community in NG. As do CRS and SEND Project. So, they’ve come together to put on a boss of a showcase for the youth music community in Notts. From both perspectives – 1 – the opportunity to perform on a sick stage (Metronome), and 2 – the chance to network and learn from a bunch of industry pros. 

With an insane 21 performances – it’s shaping up to be a proper diverse evening. And a well feel good one too. Come thru – what else you gonna do on a Thursday evening (and no, beer garden is not an acceptable alternative).

F*ck a blue duck, it’s Splendour time already. Nottingham’s biggest festival returns this Saturday, with 14 of Notts’ finest taking over Batman’s house and beautiful gardens. 

Whether you’re losing your shit to the most charming man in Nottingham (that’s ROB GREEN, btw), or going a wee bit mental to DO NOTHING over on the Confetti stage – Notts is out in force, in what looks like one of the biggest Splendours ever (humans / puppies attending wise). 

Full lineup HERE. But there’s only a sprinkling of tickets left so get on it like a Fiat 500 bonnet.
