Amplify celebrates second birthday
CROWDS of teenagers enjoyed music and entertainment when Amplify celebrated its second birthday on Saturday.
The Amplify Youth Music Project, based at The Venue in Rudheath, saw a whole host of mid Cheshire’s young bands and musicians take to the stage including Joker’s Hour, Charlotte and Sara, Tainted Memories, Standard Manoeuvres, Hymn For The Fallen and Underaged.
Paul Barratt, youth support worker who helped set up Amplify, said: “It was great to have so many young people down to support great bands and the project itself.
“Amplify wouldn't be where it is today without their continued support - a big thank you from Team Amp.”
One youngster who attended the celebrations said: “I have just got to say thanks so much for tonight, it is great to be involved with a project like Amplify - it was an epic night.”
As well as musical entertainment, the celebrations also saw some great prizes being won, including a full day’s session in a recording studio thanks to the Edge Studio.
The youth music project is now preparing to hold its next big event on December 1, when The Venue will be transformed into an art exhibition, giving young artists the chance to showcase their work.
