Learn about beatboxing and rap at two free workshops on Saturday (April 5).

The Oasis Community Centre on St Michael’s Avenue, Wisbech, will host professional performers Xidus Pain and Skilly Skillz.

The workshops are aimed at teenagers aged from 11 to 19 and will run between 2.30pm and 4pm and 4.30pm and 6pm.

In the evening, The Oasis Slam will showcase rap, beatbox and dance. It is open to all ages and entrance is just £3.

The event and workshops are part of ‘Phonic’ a project funded by Youth Music and coordinated by The Garage in Norwich. The Wisbech activities are being delivered in partnership with Beat This and ADeC.

Nathan Jones at ADeC said: “Those who come to the workshops will get an amazing opportunity to watch demonstrations, pick up top tips and get involved. Skills and Xidus are well known across the country and it is fantastic that they are coming to Wisbech.”

The Phonic project has also involved a series of sessions at the Thomas Clarkson Academy where students have learnt about rap, beatboxing, lyric writing and event management.
