The gardens of Norwich Castle were filled with the sounds of acoustic music last night, thanks to funding aimed at spreading the benefits of the London 2012 Olympics around the country.

The Somewhereto_ Jam Unplugged event featured performances from local musicians Phoebe York, a 19-year-old singer-songwriter, and Jade Murray, a 19-year-old ukelele player, at the Whiffler Theatre in the castle’s gardens.

The event was one of the first of this year’s Lord Mayor’s Celebrations was supported by Creative Arts East and Norwich City Council as part of the Somewhereto_ project, a nationwide initiative aimed at matching young people aged 16 to 25 with the space they need to do the things they love within sport, culture and the arts.

The project is funded by Legacy Trust UK and Rosalind Highet, the project administrator at Creative Arts East said the event proved very popular.

“It was really successful and the music was excellent from Phoebe York and Jade Murray,” she said.

“Everyone seemed to enjoy it and we had really good weather for it too. Hopefully these young people will now be remembered by the audience and will get to perform again, and that will carry on the legacy of the Games.”
