We will be growing our partnership with Stay Up Late for their Gig Buddies scheme.
Gig goers volunteer their time to accompany those with additional support needs, due to mental and physical disability, to be able to go to gigs. This is a program that addresses the shortcoming where care workers finish before gigs start and/or finish, meaning those with additional needs have been missing out on live music.
We will work with them to introduce them to new venues to program and deliver live shows, often but not exclusively with artists with additional needs. These shows will be programmed sensitively with sympathetic lighting and sounds levels.
The growth of this partnership allows the Gig Buddies scheme to reach new audiences and artists and grow relationships between the team and local venues.
Duration: Live events – 1 afternoon or evening
