Five creative young adults, an indie band and The Met have teamed up to raise funds for a Bury mental health charity.

Five young adults, aged 18-25 have been given the opportunity to organise a musical event at The Met, alongside Bury-based indie band Cardboard Shoes.

Their partnership is with the young people from the Blueprint Project, which arranges paid placement and the opportunity to organise a musical event under the guidance of The Met staff.

Blueprint supports the creative community through free arts programming and is now able to support Big in Mental Health with the aid of Cardboard Shoes.

Unfortunately, due to two band members testing positive for covid, Denova has had to pull out of the Gig. 

Band member Kevin has said: "We are gutted but will be re-scheduling a show in Bury as soon as possible".
