bit of a good opportunity, this. The Point arts centre in Eastleigh are a great local arts venue with a strong track record in supporting new music (they organise the yearly Eastleigh Festival, for instance, which features our own Haunted Stereo among others including Badly Drawn Boy). Basically all-round Good People with a little bit of money who care about music.
As such, they’ve laid on a free careers / networking / workshop event for anyone to attend. It features workshops, discussions and panel sessions with industry professionals from radio, print and online media as well as promoters and (repping what’s laughingly known as the record ‘industry’) ourselves.
It all runs on the 24th June (Thursday). Due to popular demand there are two sessions: 1pm-4pm and 5pm-8pm. Although the workshop is free it might be a good idea to reserve a place. Full details at www.thepointeastleigh.co.uk
