  1. Talking Festivals

    Metal welcomed students from South Essex College and some of Southend’s Secondary Schools to a mini-conference at Chalkwell Hall, with the aim of de-mystifying the many career opportunities offered by festivals across the UK. Together, the students and industry professionals explored the makings of an ideal festival site, created zines about festival ethos and environments, and attended micro-seminars and panel discussions hosted by musicians, artists and creatives who work within the festival circuit.

    Following this, a free gig was held at Chalkwell Hall, showcasing some of Southend’s next generation of brilliant musicians and songwriters.
    To broaden the conversation about festivals with the public, Metal also hosted workshops and discussions at the much loved Leigh Folk Festival, where ideas were collected for the 10th anniversary edition of Village Green festival, set for 6 July 2019.
