This week, Silver Arts Award students ran the first Mixx Jam gig at the Acorn Theatre, Penzance. Around 40 Year 8-10 Mounts Bay Students performed, filling a 3 hour slot with great entertainment. We had a great set of performers, including acoustic guitars and piano, backing tracks, rock bands and a rapper.
Everyone enjoyed themselves – the remaining 40 or so tickets all sold out, and it was overall a great night. The evening was so successful that the Acorn Theatre have already invited us back to stage another evening.
The whole event was organised by the students as part of their Arts Award and involved them in everything from marketing and ticket sales to performing. Our Arts Award students hope to hold another bigger and better MixX Jam in the near future, so look out for details after Easter.
