20Twenty Productions, based in March Town Hall, received three years of funding from Youth Music after preparing a strong application.

The money has not only allowed them to redevelop their office space, but the community benefit business will now continue to run workshops with young people.

Tom Harlock, Director of Music Development, said: “The new ‘Musical Future’ project will see young people engage in a wide variety of musical pursuits.

“This will include the training of our ‘music ambassadors’.

“This group of young people will be responsible for promoting and managing musical events in our region, so keep an eye out for future concerts in the near future.

“In addition to the Music Ambassadors, we will also be hosting a series of songwriting workshops.

“This is where young people will have the chance to use the facilities of our newly renovated studio.”

The daughters of 20Twenty director Sarah Edwards, Bella and Eva, cut the ribbon at the official unveiling of the new Town Hall space earlier this week.

Mr Harlock added: “We are very excited about the new studio space and what it can offer, while still being able to adhere to social distancing guidelines.

“It will mainly be used to record the music that the young people we work with write, but it will also be accessible to the public.

“In addition to audio recording, it also includes facilities for filming and live streaming webinars or performances.

“As soon as it is safe to do so, we will also continue our school rock band project.

“It sees students form bands, play new instruments and learn well-known songs that culminate in a performance in front of friends and family.

“In addition, as part of a heritage exploration project, 120 elementary school students will be given the task of creating digital music to support an animation. It will also earn them a Discover Arts Award.

“A great project and exciting new facilities which we hope will appeal to many young people and members of the public.”
