Babylon ARTS in Ely is to host a new season of band workshops on Thursday evenings starting February 22.

The workshops are designed to give young bands the chance to hone their skills and develop their ideas over a series of one hour sessions. They will include two free trips to a recording studio and a chance to perform in public.

The sessions have been funded thanks to a grant from the Big Lottery Fund and they will take place at Centre-E on Barton Road in Ely.

Nathan Jones, of Babylon ARTS, said: “This project is ideal for anyone wishing to meet other musicians to form a band.

“It will also be perfect for groups who would value some extra support and a place to develop their skills.

“I hope more musicians will take advantage of this great opportunity.”
