Donate your unwanted instruments to Liverpool’s Royal Court
1 month ago
Liverpool’s Royal Court Youth Theatre is holding a month-long amnesty for musical instruments in November. From violins to vuvuzelas, trombones to triangles, unwanted musical instruments are being collected. They will be donated to the young people of the Youth Theatre.
The Royal Court Youth Theatre delivers a range of opportunities free of charge for young people aged 6 – 25 from every part of Liverpool.
Designed by young people for young people, regular workshops and sessions are held providing an introduction and training for a career in the arts. With hundreds attending each week, young people learn about everything from acting to stage management; fundraising to writing scripts.
Miriam Mussa, Head of Theatre Engagement, said:
“These musical instruments, currently lying around unwanted and unplayed in homes across Liverpool, will go directly into the hand of a young person who will use them.
“Many of the hundreds of young people who come to our Youth Theatre have not had the opportunity to learn how to play the piano, or guitar, they haven’t had a lesson in sight reading or been part of an orchestra. Yet we know musicality runs at the very heart of our theatre experience.
“Being able to play a musical instrument adds another string to your creative bow, and, most importantly, it puts you on a level playing with those who have had every opportunity to learn as much as they can for a life in the theatre and the arts. This is about levelling up, as well as tuning up”.
