Beatsabar Music Project held their annual open day at their music studio in Newhampton Arts Centre, Dunkley Street.

Mayor of Wolverhampton, Councillor Claire Darke and MP for Wolverhampton South West, Stuart Anderson visited the studios to hear about the work Beatsabar do with the local community. Other guests included West Midlands Police, Wolverhampton Council, Wolverhampton University and martial arts company InPower.

Visitors were invited to meet engineers and see band rehearsal space and recording studios first hand while trying out equipment and instruments. Organisers announced their plans for the year ahead, including extending the work they do with young people and creatives across the city.
