Grassroots Music

We are delighted to be launching a musical grassroots initiative, aimed at supporting the foundations of the music industry. 

Delivered with funding from Arts Council England, the Grassroots project is a series of 18 events over 3 years, showcasing grassroots artists from around the country. All of these events are free to attend and will be held across The Platform in Morecambe and The Storey in Lancaster.

The aim of these 18 events is to explore new genres of music and attract new audiences to the venues.  A minimum of 30% of the shows will feature artists with disabilities.

These shows will also give aspiring sound and lighting engineers the opportunity to gain valuable experience working these shows under the supervision of technical officers.

They include co-creating and performing ‘Seasick’ (an interdisciplinary piece of performance art about coming to terms with chronic illness) and creating ‘Invisible’ - an event to give artists with invisible illnesses a platform to perform and discuss their experiences.
