People and Place 2018

We enjoyed it so much last year that we’re bringing it back for 2018 – it’s People and Place! Would you like to get involved?

It’s our aim to bring music to the canal-side here in Dudley. We’re looking for groups who would like to come along and perform a short set (around 15 minutes, though we’re flexible) for our visitors and their supporters. The performances won’t be ticketed and everyone is welcome to come and support the young people.

We’ll be telling people about the performances online via our website and social media, as well as advertised within our venue. For this you’ll need to provide a short paragraph about your group and another about the performance you’re doing and how it links to our ‘place’. If you’ve got an image of your group or a logo you can send us this to be included too.

You can apply to sing or play any instruments – dance groups are a little more tricky depending what you have in mind, so if you’re wanting to dance get in touch with us for a discussion before you fill out your form.

The performances will be on dates in May, June, July or August. Where possible we’ll try and schedule them for our peak visitor times, which are usually weekends and school holidays, however we’re happy to host performances during the week in term time too.

If that all sounds great and you’d like to be involved, please get in touch by email to! We’ll send you a submission form for you to fill out and send back to us.
