The Love Shouldn't Hurt  Schools Project is a campaign that seeks to change the culture of unhealthy relationships amongst teens. The project, set up by the Rising Sun Domestic Violence service, is about empowering young people to become advocates for healthy relationships, so they become the voices that stand against Domestic Abuse, both male and female alike. It believes strongly that the only way to bring Domestic Violence related statistics down is through prevention. By reaching teens as they are starting to explore all kinds of different relationships will help and challenge thinking and behaviours that they have possibly already learned. The charity also recently won the UK Youth Award for the category of ‘Biggest Impact’.

Music for Change brings world music into the classroom and the community. The vision is that all members of the community, especially children and young people, fulfil their creative potential whilst respecting and celebrating cultural diversity. We specialise in educational workshops, celebratory events and specifically targeted projects in just about any setting. We see the power of music to change lives and benefit those who may have not had the opportunity to experience music before.

To support these two local charities, tickets are £5 and there is a buy one get one free offer for Under 18s. Tickets can be reserved online here or by telephoning the Music for Change office on 01227 459243.
