Free Gig To Support NCS

NCS logoThe NCS – National Citizen Service will be holding a free gig on Saturday 4th May, Gorilla Club, Manchester. Confirmed acts include Rudimental, The 1975 and Clean Bandit.

NCS, the organisation now in its 3rd year, offers a unique opportunity to 16 & 17 year olds across the UK. Teenagers take part in a 3 week full-time programme (outside of school term time) – plus 30hrs of social action. The part-residential programme aims to build skills for work and life, while taking on new challenges and adventures as well as making new friends and a positive contribution to their communities.

There are up to 50,000 opportunities for people to get involved this year with that number expected to rise to 90,000 by 2014.

Up to 500 teenagers aged between 16 & 17 will be able to join Rudimental, Clean Bandit and The 1975 at the gig in Manchester, which will be broadcast on Channel 4 following the event. Registration to win each pair of tickets started on Facebook last week – and there’s still time to enter.

NCS is also offering the chance to go backstage and work at the show – a unique ‘Money-can’t-buy’ chance!  New roles will be revealed each week.

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson recently tweeted his support;

Piers Aggett of Rudimental said “Our lives are formed by the opportunities that are presented to us. Daring to say yes can make all the difference. By doing this gig with NCS we wanted to show young people that there are choices and opportunities to be had – a simple yes is sometimes all it takes.”

The 1975 said “We are really looking forward to playing in Manchester again, it’s been a little while!”

To get involved visit NCS on Facebook or via the official website. The programme is now in session but there’s still plenty of time to sign up for this years residentials. Every young person can participate regardless of background, experience or skill set. Entry fees are capped at £50 and bursaries are available.
