Tinchy Stryder at the Station launch party
Chart-topping grime artist Tinchy Stryder has been named as the star headliner at SSH... Station Starts Here – The Station’s three day launch extravaganza and youth arts festival which runs from 19-21 October.
Led by the Creative Youth Network, and based at the Old Fire Station site in Bristol’s city centre, The Station will provide state-of-the-art facilities and comprehensive support services for young people.
Tinchy Stryder, who topped the charts with singles ‘Number 1’ and ‘Never Leave You’, will perform at The Station on Saturday 20 October, day two of the launch event. A well established star of the UK grime scene, Tinchy began his recording career at the age of 13. Since then he’s worked with the likes of Dizzee Rascal, N-Dubz and Taio Cruz and won an Urban Music Award.
Sandy Hore-Ruthven, CEO of the Creative Youth Network, said: “Securing Tinchy Stryder as our headline act is a real coup. He got into music at a young age, and is a great example to young people as to what can be achieved with creativity, talent and a lot of hard work. We’re incredibly excited to welcome him to The Station.”
SSH... Station Starts Here kicks off with ‘Fashion Friday’, on Friday 20 October. A fashion show with the theme Re-duce, Re-use, Re-cycle will showcase work by young people, UWE fashion students and local designers. A ‘Project Runway’ style competition, run in conjunction with the UWE Fashion department, will see young people faced with a room of old clothes and accessories and given just 30 minutes to cut, customise and style outfits before the catwalk show.
Days two and three, Saturday 20 – Sunday 21 October, will be the ‘Main Event’ and the ‘Sunday Sessions’ which take on a more festival feel. Organised by Youth For Youth, the Main Event will feature star headliner Tinchy Stryder, a performance by Lace on Lipstick, UV DJ rooms, dress up photo booths, film chill out spaces and performances from Urban Arts Space.
