Aspiring DJs, producers and singers have the chance to take their careers to the next level after charity Youth Music provided a grant to a local music project.

ArtsTrain received around £15,500 and aims to use the money to transform the lives of disadvantaged 10- to 19-year-olds living in Bromley by providing courses such as lyric writing and music production.

Singer El Linko, 18, said: “There are not many positive and affordable activities for the youth. If they did more things like ArtsTrain we would be able to work towards a brighter future.”
