An independent music venue in Ipswich is set to host a live gig, run by a group of young people in what is their first event.

Ipswich youth project Tune Up, will present an event at St Stephen's Church, featuring the music of Fräulein, Takeda, Eve's Delight and Fuze.

The gig has been programmed and organised by Tune Up, a project aimed at training young individuals aged between 16 and 25 who are looking at careers in the live events industry.

Taught by the Brighten the Corners festival and The Smokehouse team, skills in marketing, programming and event production are all part of the project.

They have also invited industry experts to speak to them, providing an essential skill set for the music and creative industries.

The gig also falls as part of the Independent Venue Week, a seven-day celebration of independent music and arts venues and the people behind them.

The acts involved include Fuze, a rock band from Bury St Edmunds, Eve's Delight, Takeda, a rock group from Norwich and Fräulein, who are returning to Ipswich after their 2021 performance at Sound City.

Tune Up member Aine said: "Tune Up has been amazing, enriching and extremely useful in understanding the industry better."

Course coordinator, Caitlin Whittaker, added: "It's been really exciting putting together this show with the Tune Up group after 10 weekly workshops with them, where they've been learning lots of new skills that have directly fed into the production and promotion for this gig.

"We've got a brilliant line-up and everyone's really excited for the event."

The gig is on Saturday, February 3, and tickets are priced at just £6.
