This month, we whisk you back in time to the Land That Noz Forgot.
 
Jurassic Farm was the theme at this year's Nozstock Festival, which takes place annually near Bromyard.

The BBC Hereford & Worcester Musicians' Masterclass

The BBC Hereford & Worcester Musicians' Masterclass

For the last nine years, BBC Hereford & Worcester has been an active part of our local music festivals - putting on bands and gigs, recording for broadcast - passing some of the best acts onto national radio and securing them slots at some of the biggest events in the country.  
 
On Sunday 31 August from midday, we're bringing our ever-popular Musicians' Masterclass to The Hive in Worcester - putting together a panel of industry experts to answer those all important questions, such as:

  • How do I get signed?
  • Is there an easy way to land gigs in other areas?
  • How do I build a fanbase?
  • How do you write a number one song?
  • What's the best way to sell your music?

This is a FREE seated event, where - upon application for tickets - people are encouraged to submit a question to the panel to address. A variety of these will be discussed at the event, before opening the floor up for questions (in a style similar to that of the BBC's Question Time). This will be recorded for broadcast and transmitted over a number of weeks.
 
The guest panel includes: Martin Chambers (The Pretenders), Verden Allen & Ariel Bender (Mott The Hoople), Nigel Clark (Dodgy), Tom Oliver (Tour Manager), Ella & Pete Nozworthy (Nozstock), Brian Marr (The Marr's Bar), Death Or Glory Records (Record Store) and Scott Garrett (MAS Records).
