1 April @ 11:00 – 21:00
Band Factory is making its triumphant return in 2024! Our most anticipated music experience of the year is back, and we’re thrilled to invite you to a week-long musical extravaganza from Monday, April 1st, to Friday, April 5th, running daily from 11 am to 4 pm.
Curious about whether Band Factory is the perfect fit for you? If you’re a young person aged 12 to 18 who can play any instrument (yes, even bagpipes!), then you’re exactly who we’re looking for! Starting on Monday, April 1st, you’ll be welcomed by our team and the fantastic Pryde Kilwinning, who will be your mentor throughout the week. Following introductions, your bands will be formed, and the next couple of days will be spent crafting your setlist, practising, and jamming with your newfound musical companions. The grand finale awaits at our showcase event on Friday, April 5th, where you’ll perform the set you’ve worked hard on throughout the week.
This is a fantastic opportunity for young musicians to not only showcase their talents before a live audience but also to forge connections with like-minded peers. Who knows, you might even become a part of Garnock Valley’s next big band! Many successful musicians and bands have emerged from our Band Factory project, and you could be the next success story. Don’t miss out—secure your tickets now! Limited spaces are available, so we recommend booking as soon as possible. The full week of activities is just £20 per person.
Jam sessions will run daily from 11am to 4pm, and the showcase event is scheduled for Friday, April 5th (exact time to be confirmed). Remember to bring a packed lunch for your jam sessions or, if you prefer, grab a bite at Mocha Jaks.
We’ll be capturing the magic of both the jam sessions and the showcase performance with regular photos and videos. If you prefer not to be photographed or filmed, please notify us well in advance. For those without their own instruments, we have limited spare equipment available, with the requirement that participants have a basic level of experience and the instruments are returned after the week.
