Underground Sound History 2007-2017

Run as a drop-in project with an emphasis on music and other arts. We have a range of musical instruments including acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, percussion instruments, electric drums as well as decks, amplifiers, a selection of records, and a recording booth. 

We’ve a large comfortable room (The Crow’s Nest) that transforms into a music space for Underground sound sessions. With a second room with hot and cold drink making facilities available.

The project began as a space for for young people over 18 who are experiencing or have experienced mental health difficulties as well as their friends, family and anyone who has an interest in mental health and music. The project has grown to include people over 18 of any age with an interest in music and mental health.

The project provides opportunities for individuals to benefit from being part of a group, from learning new skills and from being creative using musical expression. It also helps to develop and build upon existing talents, making connections in the local community, learning from others and forming friendships which extend outside of the project.
