FUNDING has been granted to a popular Somerset music and entertainment venue to allow it to host a series of concerts aimed at young people.

The Cheese and Grain in Frome has been successful in a bid for funding from Arts Council England in order to enable the idea.

The series of performances will be aimed at young local audiences and up-and-coming artists between the ages of 18 and 34.

Any local artists interested in being part of the initiative should contact to register their interest.

All of the shows will be held at the Cheese and Grain's sister venue - The Tree House, on Berkley Road - and will run throughout the first half of 2024.

A spokesperson for the Cheese and Grain said: "We are delighted to share some very exciting news to kick-start 2024.

"The Cheese and Grain have been successful in a bid to Arts Council England for funding to help run a series of concerts targeted at engaging younger local audiences and emerging artists.

"More details about events to follow very soon."
