This was the second such event to be organised by Jayne Watkins from MJW Promotions.

Jayne was assisted by Tony Davis and Paul Merison in putting on the event.

Jayne started organising the event to promote under 18 youth music in the area and to give young musicians a platform on which to perform, increase confidence and build up a network of like-minded musical friends.

The event was free to take part in and Jayne would like to thank Tony and Paul for supplying and setting up the equipment as well as Sid for photos.

Jayne said: “I would like to thank the Carlisle for their support.”
