This is a student project put on by Backstage Academy as part of an assignment. The assignment is to put on an event and break even with the budget.
The event will be taking place at The Hop in Wakefield and the event is called an Acoustic Night At The Hop. The event is local, because many of the acts are either studying at Backstage Academy or 25 minuets away.
On the night of the event, we shall be issuing raffle tickets for purchase on the doors and also one of the staff shall be walking round with raffle strips. We have signed T-Shirt, Albums, etc. up for grab
Our Sponsors consist of Kieth Lemon, Wildwood Kin, Kaiser Chiefs and Nick Hodgson.
The charity we will be funding are called Leeds Music Trust, they bring people together and offer further musical experiences for educations and pleasure for all ages and abilities. They are resourced and connected, with a large group of people such as the Kaiser Chiefs, which we have contacted already.
Their mission is to support young musicians and give disadvantaged people in Leeds a chance to access training, mentoring and skills development.
