In The Know: Holiday Activities!
The school holidays are almost upon us. Young people will get a chance to refresh and engage in other activities that are not academic in nature. With this in mind, we have put together a few activities that are both fun and educational.
Songwriting Competition: Future Music launched this competition for new and established songwriters. It’s designed to find the best songwriters in the UK and get their music heard or get them signed to music labels. The competition is open to everyone who resides in the UK and has additional categories for those younger than 18 years of age. Entry into the competition costs £10 per entry. Participants are required to state the nearest performance date to where they live, when submitting their entries. For more information, click here.
