Mouses to play free event for young people

ARC YP is having its first ever social event for members (aged between 11-21) this Friday 17 February, and we are excited to announce that Teesside two-piece Mouses will be playing live!

Formed in early 2014, Mouses are guitarist and vocalist Steven Bardgett and drummer Nathan Duff, a lo-fi garage rock duo from Billingham. As heard on BBC Radio 1 (featured as Huw Stephen’s ‘Tip Of The Week’), BBC Radio 6, BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio, they released their highly anticipated debut album, The Mouses Album, on 23 September last year. 

“The band are famed for their jaw-dropping and energetic performances, seeing Mouses live is nothing short of breath-taking.” Louder Than War

Tickets to the event are free and can be booked here, but are available to ARC YP members aged from 11 to 21 only – you can sign up to the scheme here, call the ARC Box Office on 01642 525199 or you can join on the night.

Amy Mitchell, ARC’s Young People’s Programme Coordinator, said ““We introduced ARC YP, our free membership scheme for young people aged 11-21, last summer and have been offering creative events for young people in Stockton – all free – since then. We’ve had immersive film, arts workshops, and even a Harry Potter event – but this is the first time we have invited every member of the group to meet up and get social – and it’s our first live music gig specifically for young people. It was important that we had a local band, and that it was original music, so we are over the moon to have Mouses playing. It’s a fantastic opportunity to see a great band, meet other young people and have a great night out in half term – and it’s free. Don’t miss it! We look forward to seeing you there.”

ARC YP offers an opportunity to get involved in theatre, film, art and music-related events and activities with like-minded young people. Members benefit from exclusive access to workshops, discounted tickets for shows and films, 10% discount on selected food and drink in No 60 and more.
