#BarrowMusic will run from Thursday 30th September until Sunday 3rd October and will see venues and spaces around the Town Centre filled with an eclectic mix of music performances and workshops.
The forum will also play host to an Educational Music Conference for young people. Working with Cumbria Music Hub, South Lakes Rock School, BBC Radio Cumbria, BBC Music Introducing in Cumbria and BIMM Manchester, this will hopefully inspire local youngsters to consider a career or hobby in the creative industries sector.
#BarrowMusic is a series of pilot events, different strands of which have been developed by South Lakes Rock School, Barrow Underground Music Society, The Forum, Barrow Borough Council, Barra Culture and Barrow BID. We look forward to seeing how the people of Barrow engage with the planned events which will directly influence how future plans develop for more musical celebrations locally.
