Music Unites Young People at K-Town

Friday 12th November 2010

 

The K-Town Music Studio in Kempston is bustling with young, gifted artists from all over the Bedford Borough area since the Council refurbished the Kempston Youth Centre in May 2009.

 

The studio has served to bridge the gap between ‘hard to reach’ young people in the area and bought them together under the banner of music. The K Town Music Studio boasts state of the art acoustic properties and has been built to the highest specification.

 

The talented youngsters also took it upon themselves to raise funds to enhance the development of the studio from organisations such as StreetCred (£600), Kempston Town Council (£1000) and various other Kempston charities.

 

Cllr Nicky Attenborough awarded the studio with £1000 that went towards informal education to teach the users of the facility more about music / video production, performance and writing.

 

Cllr David Sawyer, portfolio holder for Children’s Services commented: “The studio has given some young people who are ‘hard to reach’ the opportunity to be heard through music and showcase their creative musical talent, realise their potential and thereby a chance to raise their achievable aspirations, self confidence, self-esteem and motivation.”
