In the wake of the recent rise in hate crime and the shootings in Orlando, our students have started a movement called Hearts not Parts in support of the LGBT community. On the 28th June they ran a very successful fund raising event to fund their stage at The upcoming Corbridge Festival on the 9th of July. The Academy of Music and sound are running and curating the 3rd Stage at Corbridge Festival as a Hearts Not Parts Stage, preaching tolerance and respect in troubled times. Amongst the line up is our very own Fletcher Jackson a band formed in Academy of Music and Sound North East. Fletcher Jackson have become one of the most hotly tipped local bands in the last year.
Our students will be playing alongside The Coral and Grandmaster Flash plus many more internationally renowned acts!
