Musical Youth Merseyside delivers music projects to 14-18 year olds in the Merseyside area. Last night, (Tuesday 3rd February 2004), we held our end of programme concert at the Picket venue.
The event was
attended by more than 200 young people and their families. I think the comments
of the regional Director for Youth Music, Chris Spriggs, perfectly sum up the
importance of this community venue. The email that I received from her reads:
Chris Spriggs - Youth Music.
The Picket and Phil Hayes have given thousands of young people a sense of pride and increased self-esteem and also launched hundreds of careers within the music industry. Please do all you can to save this valuable facility.
