Published Monday, 27th June 2016

Voices and Visions is the annual showcase of work from primary and secondary schools who work with young people in Worcestershire.

Now in its 18th year, over 70 schools will be exhibiting Visual Art to the theme of Your Voice, Your Visions.

The exhibition showcases both the fantastic work of Worcestershire's young people and the schools and arts organisations who work with them, and is being held 14th May - 12th July 2016.

After performances at Worcester Cathedral and The Hive, next up is the BBC Ten Pieces Showcase, to be held at No. 8, Pershore, on Wednesday 6 July at 7.30pm.

Worcestershire High Schools have collaborated with visiting artists to respond creatively to the BBC Ten Pieces project and will showcase their performances during this evening event.

Tickets cost £7 each, or £5 for concessions. To book visit www.number8.org/booking/

teachers and arts organisations for being involved. To get this amount of participation from schools is a fantastic achievement and speaks volumes of the way in which arts are valued within the county."

Trevor Jones of Worcestershire Youth Music said: “Worcestershire Youth Music is pleased to be working with Worcestershire Arts Service and Worcestershire schools to stage this year’s Voices and Visions Festival.
