Sheffield's £1.8m music hub started with concert

A concert has been held to mark the start of a new music hub to enable young people in Sheffield to sing or learn a musical instrument.

The Arts Council awarded £1.8m funding earlier this year to set it up.

It will provide opportunities for thousands of people aged between five and 18 to play in groups, sing and learn instruments, the council said.

The hub was launched with a concert performed by young people at Sheffield's City Hall.
