Budding young musicians will get the chance to write songs and play music this week as Brighter Sound delivers three days of sonic workshops at Wythenshawe Hall.
Anyone can attend the free workshops from Thursday July 31 to Saturday August 2 11am-4pm where there will be the chance to get involved with some local history, write songs and poetry, play music and create art with sounds; all working with professional artists and musicians.
Brighter Sound will also have a marquee at the Wythenshawe Games this week for young people to drop-in and try out some music equipment, beats, lyric writing and MCing.
