Northern Ireland’s fastest growing family friendly music festival, Moira Calling is pleased to announce their continued support of The Prince’s Trust at the 2018 event, which takes place on September 07th & 08th. Two of the Artists on the line up this year, Owen Denvir and Cheylene Murphy of Beauty Sleep have been supported by The Prince’s Trust Enterprise programme which helps young people aged 18-30 to turn big ideas into a business reality, offering training, mentoring support, funding and resources.
The Prince’s Trust is a champion of young people, no matter what their background.
Despite lives stifled by unemployment, homelessness, being in care or being in trouble with the law, young people can succeed with the right help.
They create opportunities for vulnerable young people to thrive and support them to build their skills and confidence and enable them to take responsibility for their lives and move into work, education, training or volunteering.
The Prince’s Trust has been helping young people across Northern Ireland for the past 40 years and in the past year alone supported nearly nine thousand young people, with over 80% of those transitioning into jobs, education and training.
This year the Prince’s Trust is celebrating the second year of the partnership with Moira Calling by bringing our communities even closer together.
Two of the ‘Get Started’ programmes – DJ-ing & Make Up will culminate in their involvement in Moira Calling with the DJs performing a warm up set for the big event and the budding Make Up artists offering festival make up to revellers on the day!
The Get Started programme is a great way to help young people discover new talents. With each course focused on a theme – such as sport, art, fashion or music – they work in a team with others, to complete a group challenge over five days. Supported by professional experts, it’s down to them to create something brilliant.
Owen Denvir came through the programme in 2015, helping him to develop the business skills he needed to back up his creative ones.
Cheylene Murphy of Beauty Sleep is currently being supported by the programme with the aim of establishing a Music PR business.
Ruth Cooper, Senior Head of Fundraising at the Prince’s Trust said;
“The Prince’s Trust are delighted that for the second year running Moira Calling will be supporting our work across NI. Young people are facing extraordinary pressures in their daily lives, so we are here to help them develop the skills and confidence to succeed, no matter what barriers they have faced. At the Trust we love Moira Calling’s community ethos and we’re excited to be bringing our communities together, with young people that have been supported by the Prince’s Trust woven into the fabric of the festival. Across the weekend you’ll find a host of friendly faces that have been through our programmes, from the main stage to the front desk.”
Jillian Marsden, Moira Calling said;
