BBC Introducing in Ross-on-Wye

BBC Introducing in Ross-on-Wye

This month's sessions were recorded at The Phoenix Theatre in Ross-on-Wye, which used to be the town's fire station.
 
The team behind the productions formed nearly 100 years ago at the Corn Exchange, which burned down in 1939.
 
They then moved to The Roxy Theatre, which closed, and in 1982 moved to their present location at the top of the town.
 
They extended the facility 20 years later and now host events almost every weekend.

BBC Introducing in Hereford & Worcester supports unsigned, undiscovered and under-the-radar musicians from Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
 
Since 2011, we've been taking the show out on-the-road showcasing the very best musicians from our two counties.
 
Our next recording session takes place on Sunday 23 April at the Boar's Head in Kidderminster and features five acts we've been playing on BBC Hereford & Worcester.
 
It's free to get in - and this is your chance to see how we capture live music on tape, while being able to enjoy some of the hottest new acts we've got in our area right now.
 
None of these acts knew they were being considered for a live session - they were chosen based on the tracks they uploaded to us.
 
Doors open at 6pm - but you're more than welcome to turn up any time until 11pm.
