Youth Tech Team

The Garage delivered a fantastic project in 2023 for young people interested in working backstage on the technical side of music/performance events.

We were looking for people aged 14-21 years old who wanted to learn and develop sound, lighting and setup skills for music/performance events.

This opportunity was FREE, but did require commitment to the training sessions and gigs.

Now we’re looking for people to take part in 2024. To express an interest, see how to book below.
