Bamford Community Arts & Crafts (BCAC) hosts a twice yearly event for young musicians across the Hope Valley to come along and showcase their talent. The event is held in Bamford's community hub, The Anglers Rest, which was purchased by the local community as a co-operative in 2013. The event attracts between 6-10 different bands and around 20 young performers and is free of charge both to attend and to perform, making it accessible for all. Genres are diverse and dependent on the interests and talents of the young performers but in the past, these have included folk, rock, rap and pop. The Hope Valley has a track record of producing talent with The Old Dance School, Bella Hardy, Lady Maisery and Drenge all developing from the area. Gig in the Pub plays a key part in nurturing and showcasing this talent. However, the future of this important event is at risk as the hub's equipment is old & outdated. The community hub now needs new lighting, amp & speakers for the gig to continue.

What we'll deliver:

  • Purchase new speakers
  • Purchase amplifier
  • Purchase lighting rig
  • Install speakers, amplifier and lighting
  • Develop the programme of acts and publicise the gig to the wider Hope Valley
  • Promote the event to young musicians in the Hope Valley
  • Develop the programme of acts and publicise the gig to the wider Hope Valley
  • Hold the event on 10th July 2015

Why it's a great idea:

Young people in rural areas face particular challenges in getting their talent recognised compared to those in urban areas who have easier access to outlets such as open mic nights, and a range of venues in which to play their music and develop confidence. Gig in the Pub offers an important outlet for young people in the rural area of Hope Valley to showcase their musical talent in a safe, supportive environment, helping them build their confidence and experience of playing live in front of an audience. Gig in the Pub has proven itself as a incubator for talent. This important musical event needs a relatively small amount of money to continue, enabling the purchase of replacement lighting, speakers and amplifer, yet the benefits for young people in the area will be significant.

Steps to get it done:

  • Purchase new speakers
  • Purchase amplifier
  • Purchase lighting rig
  • Install speakers, amplifier and lighting
  • Promote the event to young musicians in the Hope Valley
  • Develop the programme of acts and publicise the gig to the wider Hope Valley
  • Hold the event
