The annual Saturday music club at Quadring got underway for 2015 at the weekend.

Scarlet Community Music Club’s Rustic Melodies project saw nearly 50 children, aged five to 12, gather at St Margaret’s Hall.

They are learning to play percussion, perform in the orchestra, sing, dance and act with the Alien Orchestra which is part of the Rustic Melodies project.

This year sees the 11th project to get kids involved in arts and drama, funded by Youth Music and the South Holland District Council.

Organiser Liz Lenten said: “Every year we have done this has been a huge success and with so many children attending it looks like this year will be another triumph.”

Kids attended the taster session on October 17 with an entry of £1 per child. There will be weekly workshops until the final performance on December 19, when tickets will be sold to the public for £1.

There is also an opportunity for 13-18 year old Young Music Leaders to complete a Trinity Guildhall Arts Award, where young people can develop their leadership skills.
