Lincolnshire-based music charity celebrates 20th birthday
A Lincolnshire-based community music charity is celebrating 20 years of music development.
Reaching across Lincolnshire, the East Midlands and beyond, soundLINCS has brought music to hundreds of thousands of people.
With over 40,000 workshops delivered, three quarters of a million participants from ages 0 to 100 and more than 1,000 videos and music tracks published online or on CD, it’s been a busy 20 years for the organisation.
To mark the birthday a drinks reception is taking place on Friday, June 1 that will bring together people involved with the company spanning both decades to reminisce, party and play some music together as they look back over the years of music-making.
On Saturday, June 2 several groups from soundLINCS’ New Tricks project will come together for a public performance at The Blue Room in Lincoln.
New Tricks is soundLINCS’ Older Adults Music Service, supported by funding from Arts Council England and the Postcode Community Trust.
The event promises to be an irreverent, anarchic musical extravaganza, bringing an eclectic mix of music from an eclectic mix of people.
Tickets cost £5 and for more information contact soundLINCS on 01522 510073 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
CEO Nikki-Kate Heyes said: "We are thrilled to have reached our 20th year, it has been an exhilarating journey and the birthday celebration will be the start of yet another exciting year of growth and development for soundLINCS.
"We’ve got some incredible plans and aspirations throughout the year and we hope that as many people as possible will get involved throughout."
