Youth Mayor’s Music Mayhem

Published Tuesday, 19th November 2019

In a bid to revitalise the youth music scene in Southend, the former Youth Mayor, Nathaniel Whitehouse, has set up a music event for young musicians in Southend.

Music Mayhem is set to take place at Twenty One (opposite the pier) on Sunday 24 November, 1pm - 6pm (doors open at 12.30pm) allowing young bands and musicians to perform following a pledge made by Nathaniel during his term as Youth Mayor.

The event will be supporting Southend HARP, a charity devoted to tackling homelessness in Southend. There will be opportunities to donate to HARP throughout the event.

The Southend Youth Council is an organisation for 11-18 year olds living or studying in Southend, meeting monthly in the council chambers. Some of their campaigns include the 1757 voices mental health charter in which 1757 members of the youth were consulted about their views on the adequacy of the mental health provisions available in Southend. From this, a charter was formed, to which schools across Southend signed up to.

Coming from a musical background himself, former Youth Mayor, Nathaniel Whitehouse, said: “A platform such as this is an excellent opportunity for up and coming musicians to get a good start in their music careers.”

Eugene Vlas, Youth Mayor, said: “I am looking forward to the event and on behalf of the other Youth Councillors, I am sure they are too.”

Please note that the venue has a capacity of 150.
