The aim of the ten week Luton project is to inspire and motivate the students.

They participated in ten pre show sessions which involved them taking part in activities outside of their comfort zone.

Jermaine Hall, project organiser, said: “The sessions have been motivational and inspirational for the young people.

“We had a film making workshop where they learnt and practised using and being in front of camera.

Keshi Anderson, Aaron Fontaine and Arran Stewart took part in inspirational talks and spoke about their experiences and how they found success.

Jermaine added: “The young people were then given the opportunity to interview these role models in a professional way, using skills learnt in prior weeks.”

The showcase event is on Friday, July 31, at High Town Recreation Centre and will feature dancers and singers from Luton.

There will also be a performance from some of the students taking part in the project.

Jermaine said: “The showcase is a student run event which we hope will have a positive impact on the entire town.

“All the money raised is going towards a rewards trip for the young people who have completed the ten week project.”

Doors open at 6pm, tickets are £6 and £3 for under 16’s.
