Organised by the community, for the community, this programme of workshops and events will be coordinated by our local team of trained events volunteers, as part of a national community music programme of Our Big Gig EXTRA activities throughout 2015.
From April 2015, there will be a series of free music workshops for members of the local community in Ealing. Participants will be offered the chance to to perform at the EXTRA music festival in June.
On Saturday 13th June we will hold the EXTRA music festival in a park in Ealing, in partnership with Ealing Parks and Open Garden Squares weekend which is organised by the National Trust and London Parks & Gardens Trust. This will be a free, one day, family-friendly event showcasing local talent, offering music workshops and performances, with food and market stalls.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
This programme is a great idea as it offers a comprehensive training programme for local volunteers in events management, in order to create opportunities for bringing people together through music via workshops and community festivals. The programme will build on existing cultural networks and partnerships within the borough, with the aim of uniting the diverse communities across the area, showcasing local talent and building skills.
Steps to get it done:
Our Big Gig is the UK's largest community music celebration which will takes place across the UK every summer. Presented by Superact, this annual event – which was formerly known as the Bandstand Marathon - brings communities together to improve community cohesion and inspire more people to take part in music making opportunities in their local area. All Our Big Gig events are organised by local volunteers that can come from a wide range of community groups, organisations and associations.
Our Big Gig EXTRA is a programme of enhanced community music activity in areas designated as facing social integration challenges. Other programmes of delivery for 2015 are being delivered in Bradford, Birmingham, Luton and Ealing.
