£30,000 Funding for Rock & Pop Institute

January 2020


King James has been granted a further £30,000 in funding from the Arts Council to enable or Music Department to continue delivering our hugely successful Rock & Pop Institute.

Now in its third year, the facility provides an opportunity for young musicians from King James and the surrounding schools to get together on a weekly basis to write and perform music. Members also record at professional studios, create music videos and have the chance to visit and perform at large venues such as The Sage in Gateshead. The funds will be used for staffing costs and to buy new equipment and instruments.
