Step By Step’s seventh-annual Sleep Out at the EBB Stadium on Friday 23 June will feature a live performance from young participants in the recent Big Music Project.
The 11-week Project, organised by Step by Step and Aldershot’s West End Centre, provided opportunities for young people to be coached, mentored and taught by renowned practitioners and musicians such as Anna Neale, Ricky Tart, Chris Redmond and James Tanch. Those participants will now reunite at the Sleep Out, to showcase their new-found songwriting skills.
Local music charity Forward 4 Wiz – formed in memory of Darren ‘Wiz’ Brown, former lead singer of Farnborough band Mega City Four, to support young musicians – have provided a further three months’ funding which will allow the participants to hone their performance at the EBB Stadium.
Step by Step are inviting you to join them at the Sleep Out Challenge to enjoy the performances from the Big Music Project, as well as a performance from up-and-coming local singer Jack Luke Mason, whose video of him singing in Camberley went viral, leading to a live performance on Eagle Radio.
There will also be wood-fired pizzas available, and a feature film shown on the stadium’s scoreboard, before settling down on the East Bank for the night to Sleep Out to raise awareness and funds for young people who are facing homelessness.
1 in 100 young people in the UK are now expected to experience homelessness. To join the Sleep Out and help end youth homelessness please visit www.stepbystep.org.uk/sleepout.
