Volunteers step up to the mic

Cardiff Young People First bring the party to Chapter

Action4Access has been putting on live music events since 2009

Young people with learning disabilities are being given the chance to perform at Chapter Arts Centre as part of a live music and open mic event.

The evening is part of Action4Access, a project started by Cardiff Young People First that aims to promote events for people with learning disabilities.

The event, named ‘Right to Party’, takes place on 10 November and will consist of an open mic slot and performances from local bands ‘Vaguely Artistic’ and ‘Inconsiderate Parking’.

Action4Access has been organising accessible events for young people with learning disabilities since 2009, with the help of funding from the Big Lottery Fund.

Facilitator Helen Delingpole said, “We’re really hoping that these events will continue to run, and that funders will continue to support us.”
