The Timeless Project

Beat Bazaar's Timeless project was one of the top 10 projects chosen to receive  funding from the Advancing Equality Grant Fund 2014 launched earlier this year by Trafford Council,  offering grants of up to £5,000 to fund innovative ideas to ‘Reduce Social Isolation’ in Trafford communities.

The Fund invited bids from voluntary and community organisations with innovative ideas to support isolated sections of the community to engage in activity and foster new community relationships. The fund was hugely popular with almost 50 groups applying for a slice of the £30,000 fund available.

A panel made up of representatives from the Diverse Communities Board reviewed the applications and selected the best ten to receive funding.

Beat Bazaar is looking forward to launching the project, which will deliver live music making and sing-along sessions to elderly people living in sheltered accommodation who have limited opportunities to hear live music and sing. The project will culminate in a live showcase with performances from the residents, a live band and guest singers from the community. The project will focus on the musical tastes of the residents and will take into consideration noise levels, keeping the acoustics and levels suitable for the participant’s ears.

The project was inspired by Tommy the 92 year old SAS veteran who recorded some songs in Gorse Hill Studios.  Tommy has a beautiful singing voice.  He can sing in more than one language in fact.  He can also play the harmonica. The first sing along session will take place on the 7th of November at All Saints Church, Lostock from 6.30 PM.
