On 12th November 2017, Mytime Active's award-winning music programme ArtsTrain was invited by Serious Events and the EFG London Jazz Festival to take a group of 25 young people to perform at the Southbank Centre as part of the ‘Next Generation Takes Over’ event.
ArtsTrain secured the headline slot, performing to a packed venue just before jazz legend Marcus Miller.
Take a behind the scenes look at the young people in action:
On November 13th, we hosted our own event to celebrate the 25th year of the EFG London Jazz Festival. The event was held at The Churchill Theatre and provided a platform to showcase local young people’s extraordinary original music.
"I have recently left care and this song is a chance for me to celebrate what I have achieved and look forward to what the future holds."
Mytime Active is committed to providing more creative opportunities for young people in the future so that the hundreds of young people who have started to fulfil their potential this year will be able to further their training and development.
