We are extremely proud to once again be hosting our summer search for young creative talent in Nottinghamshire.

The county council’s County Youth Arts team are behind a number of innovative projects within the creative industries, working with professional artists to help young people across the county – everywhere from Mansfield, Ashfield, Worksop, Eastwood and all other areas - to realise their full potential.

This week has seen the launch of Sonar Music Industry Week, offering a range of music industry workshops and masterclasses during late June and early July.

We have had live auditions at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham to search for individuals to make up the county’s next Supergroup.

It is the third time we have launched this initiative to produce a band from talented young people across the county where they will sign up to a record label and perform gigs.

Other activities during Sonar will take place at County Youth Arts and Nottinghamshire Performing Arts base at the Old Library in Leeming Street, Mansfield, which has great facilities.

County Youth Arts have excellent industry links to professionals in London and other big cities and are able to provide top-class support and guidance to musicians, dancers, singers and others interested in getting into these careers.

Young people in the county who are serious about a career in these creative industries are in great hands with our County Youth Arts team.
