Future Talent @ 20

We’re proud to announce that to mark our 20th Anniversary as a charity in 2024, our current crop of amazing young musicians will have the chance to compose and record their own album of original material, and to perform it live on the stage of London’s Roundhouse in 2025.
June 8, 2023

At Future Talent, we’ve always believed that gifted young musicians from low-income backgrounds deserve the chance to show the world what they can do.

So we’re proud to announce that to mark our 20th Anniversary as a charity in 2024, we’re giving our current crop of amazing young musicians the chance to compose and record their own album of original material.

And to perform it, live, on the stage of London’s Roundhouse in 2025.

They’ll have help from some of the finest musicians in the country.

But the help that matters most is the incredible generosity of music-lovers like you.

Because without your support our life-changing work couldn’t continue.

Our Future Talent young musicians have been astonishing us every day for 20 years.

Let’s ensure the next 20 are just as jaw-dropping.
