Young people in Ayrshire – we need you!

Wild Life FM

We’re looking for young people aged between 14 and 26 with a passion for music. It could be singing or writing your own songs, playing an instrument, belting out tunes on the karaoke, singing in the car, in your bedroom or busking in the street. We don’t care what your experience is, we just want you to love music.

National Theatre of Scotland and the brilliant Belgian company Campo are joining forces to present Wild Life FM in Ayr this Autumn. Part theatre, part gig, part live radio show, Wild Life FM will be co-created by young people in Ayrshire and we need you to take part!

If you’d like to take part all you have to do is prepare a piece of music that means something to you and sign up to share it with the team at a date to be confirmed during 10-16 September in Ayr.

Develop your talent with a world-class creative team, work with other young performers from Wild Life FM London and perform on stage in a totally unique performance.

After you’ve shared your piece with us in September, we will need some time commitment from you. We’ll hold workshops for everyone over two weeks from 8-19 October and rehearsals for the performances will take place from Monday 22–26 October.

The final performances of Wild Life FM are on 27 & 28 October at the Gaiety Theatre in Ayr as part of National Theatre of Scotland’s Futureproof Festival.

Interested in getting involved? You can:

Come along to Cameron’s Bar, 8 Fullarton St, Ayr KA7 1UD on Monday 3 September from 7pm for Cameron’s monthly Monday Monologues night, which will be given a musical twist for the occasion (over 18’s only).

Submit a video of a musical performance you are involved in by emailing
