Children and young people are enjoying taking part in their own rock band this month thanks to Wolverhampton’s Yo! Summer programme, which is running throughout the school holidays.

A Rock School, organised by WV10 Consortium, is just one of the hundreds of activities, many of them free, that are being held across the city for all ages this summer. Details of what’s on and where can be found on the Yo! website.

Based at Low Hill Youth Resource Centre, the Rock School provides opportunities for young people to access musical instrument tuition, singing and performance coaching and to take part in their very own rock band. 

Councillor Beverley Momenabadi, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: “Our aim is to give children and young people the best start in life, and part of this is to offer accessible and fun things to do during the school holidays. 
“We are delighted to be working with local organisations like WV10 Consortium to deliver an extensive programme of activities this summer. Its Rock School is proving to be a great success, and there are plenty of other activities taking place so please take a look at the Yo! website to find out what’s happening and where because there’s sure to be something for everyone.”

The Yo! website also offers children, young people and their families support, advice and information on everything from mental health and wellbeing to education and careers.
