The Albemarle Centre is throwing open its doors on nine Saturdays throughout 2017 to encourage us all to realise our musical potential.

Whether you are a budding or established musician, a beginner, or just someone who has always fancied getting their hands around a microphone or playing an instrument, the Albemarle – together with Hull Music Hub and many special guests – is ready to unlock your potential.

Hull’s state-of-the-art music facility is helping to ensure that musical memories are made throughout 2017. There are no limits or barriers, so it’s time to explore and discover your musical abilities – you’ll be in great company.

The Saturday workshops will be free, but ticketed. In some sessions, people can just drop in on the day.
