News – Stayfree rehearsal rooms 30th anniversary celebrations, Sunday 22nd May 2022


If you’ve ever fancied having a singing lesson, playing the drums or being in a band, you can
have a go for free this Sunday at Stayfree Music’s Open Day.

The huge building on Frog Island, Leicester is home to more than 20 band rehearsal rooms,
as well as hosting music tuition and recording studios. This Sunday 22nd May, you can tour
the building, see bands in action, join in a drumming workshop and find out what’s on offer
for children and adult beginners, as well as those who already play in bands.

Singing teacher Kay is offering free group taster sessions, and studio producer Bhav will
show how a song is created. Other free bookable sessions for adults and children include
drumkit, bass and electric guitar lessons. And rocking out isn’t just a male hobby. Since
January, five new all-women bands have formed in Leicester; a workshop at the event will
show how easy it is to get started creating your own original music.

For the day, the Lock 42 canalside yard will be turned into a buzzing outdoor venue with
cake from nearby Bitzy’s Emporium, drinks, musicians’ market stalls and an open mic

This huge free open day event is likely to be very popular, so anyone wishing to have a stall,
or try a free workshop or lesson should book as soon as possible. For more information,
