Sounding Out Southwick

The Bunker is well-known for its work within local communities, providing workshops for a wide variety of people of all ages and abilities. Now, through funding from Community First, these workshops will be traveling across the waters to the citizens of Southwick. The Bunker has already contacted two groups: SNYP (Southwick Neighbourhood Youth Project) and the Salvation Army, who showed interest in what there is to offer.

SNYP are wishing to put on DJ workshops, and the Salvation Army are going for full band workshops. These workshops will have a focus on heritage, young people, and the accessibility of services.

IMG_0633The workshops (of which there will be 4) will start in November. There will be a total of four spanning across the month. Two weeks will be spent with SNYP, and then a further two weeks with the Salvation Army. There will be more information on confirmed times and dates very shortly – make sure to check the website or contact direct and the information will be given once available.

Liam Huitson, Music Business Co-Ordinator at The Bunker had this to add:

“We identified that we didn’t do enough work with those over the water, and so we decided to help develop music workshops for local communities that we haven’t necessarily worked with before. Hopefully, by extending our reach, we can help to introduce more people to the wonderful world of music.”

"The Bunker is a superb place to have in Sunderland, it is a breeding ground for talent and without it I doubt I would have ever become a professional musician. I have been going there for 15 years and it's better than ever. It's soulful, ethical and affordable and the city would be screwed without it. I love it."

"Sunderland owes a great deal to the Bunker. Not just because of the bands it has helped to nurture. Well known bands reveal only a fraction of the important work that the bunker does. The work the bunker does is truly invaluable and our City cannot do without it!
