Under 18s nights set to start at town club


A new series of Under 18s events are set to take place at the Assembly Rooms from Monday, December 22.

Officials at Boston College’s Sam Newsom Music Centre and the Assembly Rooms have teamed up to host the regular nights for 13-18 year-olds, which operate under the name of Aftermath.

The events, organised by music lecturer Jamie Hancock, began at the Peter Paine Performance Centre where artists from Boston College performed, playing a range of music genres including: dance, house, dubstep, electro, hip-hop and drum and bass.

Organisers claim the success has lead to the collaboration with the Assembly Rooms.

Assembly Rooms director Matt Clark said “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Boston College, and in particular the Sam Newsom Music Centre.

“We are excited for what lies ahead in respect of these under 18s nights with the performances from Boston College students, and also of course at the opportunity to show our premises off to a different group of the local community.”

The events will provide opportunities for up-and-coming musicians from Boston College to showcase their talent, while also offering a great night out for people unable to attend the usual nights at the Assembly Rooms.

The students will also be responsible for setting up the events and promoting them – which will go towards completing additional aspects of their courses.

General manager of the club Gemma Bowers said: “We will be going all out to ensure that the entertainment is second to none so that we deliver an experience for all to enjoy, whilst listening to and watching the young musicians and entertainers.”

The first event takes place on Monday, from 7-10pm. Tickets are £4 early bird, £5 online and on the door from 7-7.30pm and £7 from 7.30pm onwards.
