Young people can take part in a variety of workshops next week which will cover film, music and art.

On Tuesday (March 31), there are workshops to suit a range of interests in the Guildhall Arts Centre, Grantham. The day’s programme includes working with professional film company, Blueprint Media, with ‘Film a Mockumentary’, a free ‘Art Drop-In’ session supported by Grantham College and a ‘Performance Workshop for Musicians’ run by Access to Music.

Not only this, but there is also a ‘Song Writing Workshop’ which gives young people the opportunity to write and perform a song, which will be included in the ‘Closing Gig’ that evening.

This year’s LOV Festival returns to the Guildhall after the success of last year’s event. Lincolnshire One Venues (LOV) Young People’s Programme has teamed up once again with the LOV Directors, a volunteer group of young enthusiastic event organisers. This group has created 2015’s festival for young people aged 12-25 with these various workshops and an evening gig for young local talent.

LOV is a network of 10 performing and visual arts venues from across Lincolnshire, established to create more coherent arts across the county. The Young People’s Programme aim to get young people involved in the arts as audience members, participants, and decision makers and the LOV Festival is a prime example of this.

The day’s activities begin at 10am ending with the gig in the ballroom from 7pm. The gig will be a mixture of music from acoustic to rock with a bit of jazz thrown in for good measure. The evening will feature local artists Oscar & Ryan, The Odell’s, Sushi Cat’s and Monochrome Empire.
