Bid to make Sir William Romney’s School's music facilities open to community
BUDDING musicians in Tetbury are invited to get involved with a project that could see music facilities made available to the community.
Sir William Romney’s School in Tetbury has a number of cutting-edge musical facilities – including a recording studio – and is hoping to make them available for use by the wider community.
Headteacher Stephen Mackay said the school was working with music charity Fairgame to put together a bid for between £15,000 and £30,000 funding for the project from the Youth Music Programme – an organisation promoting music-making opportunities for children and young people.
"We have some excellent facilities at the school including a recording studio which we would like to encourage community use of," he said.
"As part of this we will be bidding for funding to set up after school, evening and weekend workshops and to provide access and technical support to the recording studio.
"The focus will be on young people in the area but this could extend to a wider range of ages in the future."
As part of the bid the school has set up an online consultation to see what residents and people in the community would like to see from the project, which will be run on a non-profit basis.
