STUDENTS at Cowley Sixth Form have organised an evening of live music this week to showcase the talent of local budding musicians.

The event, 'Catalyst', will involve students from Years 12 and 13 with live music to be performed from across the genres.

Six-piece Metanoia will headline the event, whose assortment of covers spans through the eras of pop and classic rock.

Singer-songwriter Holly Clarke will support the band with an acoustic performance, while other student bands are also scheduled to perform.

Organised for all music lovers, the event also will also be a pressure test for the musicians as their performances will be assessed by Cowley teachers as part of their course.

Forming during their studies at Cowley, Metanoia have played a few small gigs around St Helens but this is the first event they have organised themselves.

Confident of the night's success, Metanoia singer Liam Tabern said that the event will have "something for everyone".

'Catalyst' will take place on Friday, May 6 at 7pm at the Tunza Centre on Boundary Road, with tickets at £5.
