A live event training workshop for young people aged 16-26 will be open to attend on Saturday the 10th of June from 10am-8pm at The Spectrum Centre Theatre, Inverness.

The unique live event named "Setting The Stage" will give participants a "hands on" experience at a "mock music" event with no audience.

Participants will be working alongside industry professionals, whilst developing skills in live music production.

The skills participants will learn include sound, lighting, back line, stage crew and event production.

All participation in the event is FREE and open to all 16-26 year old's living in the Highlands & Islands.

The event is run by the "Liam Colgan Music Fund", which is a youth music charity based in the Highlands & Islands of Scotland.

They aim to aspire young people living in remote rural areas like the Highlands to get into the music industry and make a career from it.

The Liam Colgan Music Fund received a donation from the BRIT Trust in 2022 to support the fund after the work they had done in support of the late John Preston, former chairman of the BPI(British Phonographic Industry).

The donation helped fund the launch of the fund in the Highlands and Islands which has now raised tens of thousands from fund-raising.

'Setting The Stage' will be the inaugural workshop that has been organised by the fund.
