Surrey Heath Borough Council, in association with The Academy Of Contemporary Music, proudly presents ‘A Century of Sound 2015’. This free event, Wednesday 9 to Wednesday 16 September 2015, will mark a week of celebration respecting the musical and artistic heritage of Surrey Heath in the community; a heritage going back over 100 years.

As part of the festival on Saturday 12th September, ACM will be running two FREE Music Taster Sessions in guitar, piano, drums, DJ, vocal and stage presence, all run by highly-skilled tutors from the Academy of Contemporary Music, Guildford. Each taster session is designed so you can come along and have a go for free, even if you have never previously picked up a musical instrument or ever sung a song – now is your chance! All ages welcome.

Our taster sessions will be running from Camberley Theatre on Saturday September 12th. Drums // Guitar // Piano will run from 13:00 – 14:00pm. Vocals // DJ // Bass will run from 14:30 – 15:30pm.


“I am always amazed at the enthusiasm of everyone who gets involved in local entertainment. It is so important to bring together musical talent and ability with the general public also getting involved, helping and encouraging young children and teenagers to join in these great events organised by the Surrey Heath Museum and local businesses and organisations.”
Councillor Joanne Potter, Mayor of Surrey Heath.

The festival will promote local venues in Bagshot, Camberley, Chobham, Frimley, Lightwater, Mytchett, West End and Windlesham. Local communities are encouraged to get involved either as part of the audience or by taking the opportunity to showcase their own individual talent, whatever it may be.

Taking place from Wednesday 9 to Wednesday 16 September 2015, the festival will focus on local established artists, as well as helping to develop and nurture up and coming talent at participating venues through daytime and evening performances. The festival will feature musicians, dancers, wordsmiths and poets, swing-cats and blues brothers, folkies and rockers, electronic wizards and DJs, choirs and orchestras.
