The Future Sound of Trowbridge

The Pump in Trowbridge, is delighted to announce their search for the next generation of Trowbridge’s best and brightest musical stars!

Already renowned for their unrivalled and at times blistering live music   experience, The Pump is hoping to continue to inspire and educate the next generation of music stars, by offering our venue and platform. Giving young people the agency and opportunity to present and perform their  music and art to their peers, in a professional environment.

Skill level and performance length aren’t an issue — But the desire to get up and perform is essential!

The Pump will provide an exceptionally safe space for people to perform in, regardless of age or gender. The Pump will provide expert help to assist any musician through their technical requirements to be in the best possible position to perform their music live!

There are no limits on the style, type or size of the music — We just want to unearth what latent talent we have in Trowbridge and offer the opportunity to SHINE!

You could be the next pioneer of the spoons, an aspiring violinist or an Avent-garde pysch rock, pedal noodler. You could even be a rapper or DJ—The options are limitless, but the opportunity is here and now!

You must be aged between 14 and 25, and not already in an established* band. Pre-existing local musicians will be able to perform.

There are also opportunities for those who wish to be involved with the delivery of the events. Aspiring sound engineers or lighting engineers are welcome to contact us. You may be a photographer of ‘Zine writer or blogger. You may be a graphic designer. All of these skills are valued and can be explored and developed with your peers, to gain experience and contribute to your community!
