What Next event



In January and February we are supporting live music and new music in Worthing through the #Scratchpad Project  – a six-week music project for young songwriters, performers and producers in partnership with AudioActive and Northbrook MET.

At night, you will be able to see and hear the work being made by young people as Colonnade House is transformed into a video installation and listening booth by As Described, a company who create live visuals for bands and brought the ‘Geminate II’ installation to Colonnade House last year.

AudioActive are providing the sessions for #Scratchpad. They have a track record of supporting young people to create, record and perform new work and their experienced mentors will be here to work with young and emerging music producers, vocalists, musicians & VJ’s.


Sessions are free and run on Wednesdays and Thursdays for six weeks from 17 January:

16.00 – 18.00 for ages 14-18

18.30 – 20.30 for ages 19-25


Following on in March and April we will be working with project partners and local venues to present performances in locations and venues around Worthing, plus a music industry day to bring venues, producers and musicians together to energise Worthing’s live music scene.
