musicians bring creative directions songs to life
New films celebrate songs by Creative Directions in the Community
Over the last year, residents in Askern and Edlington have been working with professional musicians on a weekly basis to compose brand new songs inspired by their local area. The groups have come up with lots of incredible ideas and we thought their amazing songs needed to be celebrated! Whilst our face to face activity has been paused and we have all been staying at home, our musicians have been busy recording a new series of films that do just that. Viewers can gain special insights into how the songs developed, before sitting back to listen to the songs being played. We’ve even transcribed the lyrics so that everyone can sing along at home!

Spirit awards grants for inclusive arts, sports and volunteering activities in communities that bring people together to improve their wellbeing. The National Lottery Community Fund founded Spirit in 2013 with a £47million endowment to continue and recreate the spirit of pride, positivity and community that inspired people across the UK during the London 2012 Games.
