Part 1 – Setting up the Trainee Band!
The trainees’ came together to form a band and for those who weren’t musically inclined were eager to pick up an instrument and committed to learning how to play those instruments. The biggest challenge set was for the band to write their own Rock music, they took this challenge head on and felt rewarded with what they have accomplished and even performed at the Sunderland Illuminations!
Part 2 – Sunderland Pride
The photography enthusiasts of the group took to Sunderland Pride to capture some photos of the event as well as experimenting with different photos. Here is a selection of photos that they took:
Part 3 – The Bunker Open Day
The band got together for The Bunker’s Open Day to put all of their practice into a great performance, whilst also lending their skills into teaching other people how to play the guitar!
Part 4 – Spark FM
The trainees’ got to experience what it’s like being on the radio! They attended The Bunker’s radio show at spark with a couple of apprentices, where they got to see the process of what happens behind the voice. After their experience of talking on the radio and learning the ins and outs, Josh then performed a couple of songs for us!
Part 5 – The Señora project
The 108-year-old yacht was welcomed into Keel Square. For the public appeal, the trainees’ collectively put their innovative minds together into producing a nautical soundtrack for the yacht’s arrival, whilst using their creative skills into helping create aesthetics for the nautical themed performance!
