Opening of a music studio for disadvantaged children after the overhaul of the social enterprise


The rapid progress in developing refurbished studios is music to the ears of a social enterprise team.

Wrexham Sounds will open the doors of its new building in the coming weeks, with a focus on transforming the lives of disadvantaged youth in the region.

Led by Directors Chris Lloyd, Dave Gray and Caroline Richards, and Managing Director Olivia Gallagher, work will now begin on installing state-of-the-art equipment and machinery before independent tutors deliver sessions music for children from underprivileged and underprivileged backgrounds. backgrounds.

Olivia said:

“Over the past few weeks, we have been busy forging new partnerships and reconnecting with stakeholders and community groups.

“Given the changes we’ve made behind the scenes and the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, the priority has been to put everything in place to be in a strong position when Wrexham Sounds ‘goes live’ in the coming weeks.

“The response we have had is incredible; so many people are invested in the basic services that we plan to provide and offer support. We are always recruiting freelance tutors and engaging in different industries, so this is a really exciting time.

Caroline added:

“Behind the scenes we have a great team of craftspeople and developers working hard to bring the plans and our long term vision to life.

“The studio already looks fantastic and will start to come to life when the layout is finalized and the equipment is installed. Everything is close at hand and we can’t wait to get started.
