OVER 1,000 youngsters will take part in a massive event organised by Solihull Music Service.
Now in its ninth year, the National Rock and Pop Festival will be staged over four days at the NIA. All the stops are being pulled out to make sure that this year’s show is the most spectacular yet, with a variety of workshops and concerts beginning on Friday.
This time around, audiences can enjoy Guitarfest – an event dedicated to the stringed instrument - and an Education Day especially for schools and colleges.
And to round things off, hundreds of musicians will be hoping to beat a world record for the most number of drummers in one venue. Proceeds from the attempt will help people with Multiple Sclerosis.
Richard Jones, from Solihull Music Service, said: “This year’s event promises to be the biggest yet and the standard of bands entering staggers me. It’s fantastic to see young people from all over the borough coming together, doing something positive and creative and being supportive of each other.”
Tickets are available from the box office on 0121 704 6962. To find out more about the festival go to www.rockandpop.org.uk.
