Latest News: Anti-Bullying Songwriting Competition
The final of the Fifth Annual Northamptonshire Anti-Bullying Songwriting Competition took place on Friday 6th February 2015 at Spinney Theatre in Northampton.
The winners of the Junior section were Miah and Kira, singing “Speak Up!”. The Senior section was won by Jamie Kimathi Milburn, with his song “Hey Pal”. Thanks to the generosity of our friends at The Society of London Theatre, we had an extra award, for the best performance on the night – and this went to Alfie Sharp.
The event was hosted by Northamptonshire Young Leader, Rachel Scott, and the awards were presented by the Chief Executive at Northamptonshire County Council, Mr Paul Blantern. More details and photos to follow, but in the meantime, a huge “Thank You” to everyone who supported the young people taking part in this inspirational event, which was made possible thanks to the generosity of Northamptonshire County Council, Northampton School For Girls and the support of our partners.
Latest News: Music Leader Training
In recent years, we have had an increase in the numbers of schools and youth clubs interested in offering the Notivate Singer/Songwriter Programme and Music Video Production Programme to their young people. So are working with a number of Post-16 students, who want to learn about our programmes and potentially join our music leader accreditation scheme.
Candidates will be taking part in some music leader training, attend an evening at Kings Park, Northampton, to learn about child protection, shadow an existing Notivate group in a school or youth club, and spend a weekend at Whitemoor Lakes residential centre to lead a Notivate group.
If you or anyone you know is interested in this activity, please contact us.
