Southend musicians and school children will be given the opportunity to perform at the Palace Theatre as part of a local music show.

Southend Makes Music, which is now in its eighth year, will showcase the musical talent of local school children and musical groups across five evening shows held at the Palace Theatre. Each night will include choral and musical performances from a range of acts.

Shows start at 7pm each evening, with special guests including The Worshipful The Mayor, Cllr Derek Jarvis, Cllr Lesley Salter, cabinet member for healthy communities and wellbeing, along with other dignitaries.

Cllr Lesley Salter, cabinet member for healthy communities and wellbeing, said: “The Southend Makes Music event gives hundreds of local children and groups the opportunity to perform on a stage in front of a live audience, something that can encourage people – particularly young students – into a career in the entertainment industry.

“It is also wonderful for parents to be able to support their children on the grand stage and it really does bring the local community together. The event always promises to be a fantastic week of shows, and all local music lovers are advised to book your tickets fast.”

The shows will take place between Monday 25 February and Friday 1 March, with tickets and full school and performer list available at Music-on-Sea.

Southend Makes Music is hosted by Music on Sea, the Music Education Hub for Southend funded by Arts Council England.
