Music Box Cares Open Afternoon Rocks!
Big Hearts was delighted to re-launch its Music Box Cares project at Tynecastle with a fun-filled open afternoon in the Gorgie Suite.
The event was designed to get young people, who are looked after and accommodated, involved in the ongoing Music Box Cares Project held at Tynecastle. The weekly Music Box Cares class will take place between 5:30pm and 7pm on Thursdays and restarts for 2016 next week.
Each young person was able to take part in taster sessions with experienced music tutors across a range of different music stations. Guitars, Keyboards, Drums and a DJ set were some of the exciting activities in place and enjoyed by many.
The day included a fantastic live performance from young Edinburgh based musician Robbie Stevens, who is a former Big Hearts Music Box Student. Finally, all the families and youngsters were given a stadium tour which included a visit to the Directors box and the home dressing room at Tynecastle.
The ongoing project is supported by the SPFL Trust and their board member Roddy Forsyth attended the event. Edinburgh Councillor, for the Sighthill and Gorgie Ward, Cathy Fullarton also showed her support for the project by attending as a guest.

Big Hearts General Manager Caryn Kerr said:
“We were delighted to see everyone who attended have a great day and we hope that many will now attend the weekly sessions which start next week. It is great to have representatives from the SPFL Trust in attendance and as with our other projects the support of Edinburgh Council is vital.”
