3) SONGWRITING WORKSHOP

SoSlam have run a Songwriting workshop at Metal during Easter, which was very successful and the group has gone on to perform at this year’s Village Green Festival and Leigh Folk Festival, as well as at regular events at Peggy Sue’s Music Bar.

They are planning to organise a similar workshop in the future – if you are interested to find out more, please email us at chalkwell@metalculture.com.
