Here's the mighty Brass Against tearing the roof off last year on our main stage. They're everything that's brilliant about live music. But the whole industry is at risk. Let's hope the government is listening. #LetTheMusicPlay ... See MoreSee Less

Calling all the artists! Get inside the mind of brilliant illustrator Laura Ellen Anderson as she tells the story of how she went about imagining and drawing the characters who became the ‘Silly Squad’ – the amazing creatures from the Reading Agency’s Summer Reading Challenge this year.
In this short film, Laura not only shows you how she created the characters, but she also takes you through the steps the youngest artists can take to draw their imaginations this summer.

Joining Harry Baker tonight for his Woken Spurred showcase is Longfella: Poet Tony Walsh – an ordinary bloke with an extraordinary talent and a remarkable story.
Overcoming childhood poverty and illness, then working everyday jobs in the communities of his beloved home city of Manchester, he has risen in recent years to become one of the UK’s most widely recognised and most in-demand professional poets.
His work came to worldwide attention in May 2017 when broadcast globally from the vigil for victims of the arena bomb outrage in his beloved Manchester. His poem ‘This Is The Place’ entered the folklore and fabric of the city he’s still proud to call home – painted onto walls, recited in schools, re-mixed by DJs, even tattooed onto skin. www.longfella.co.uk
Join Tony and Harry tonight at 8pm on our YouTube Channel for what promises to be a very special 40 minutes of spoken word from two great poets: bit.ly/gblive-spurred-5
