In partnership with Romsey Mill & HighRise Theatre, working with filmmakers JC Visuals & LT Film
After the success of the first project, the group came back together, with a few new faces for Beats, trials & Tribulations 2.0.
The project collaborates with young people who are supported by Romsey Mill, and who for no fault of their own, have barriers in their lives. Over 10 weeks, young people create original tracks, freestyles and music videos, working alongside industry professionals.
13 young people engaged with the programme, producing 3 new freestyles and 3 original music videos, with many new tracks and bars along the way.
You can see the videos and a documentary of the process created in a YouTube playlist, or at the bottom of this page.
Note: The videos were made for an adult audience, and are not suitable for children
This project was supported by Romsey Mill, Cambridge City Council, and the Police & Crime Commissioner fund.View the YouTube playlist

“It gave us more confidence and a lot of stuff changed, I can’t lie…you step in here shy, and you come here, and you’re not shy anymore, you got more confidence… if everyone keep going like this, we will all get somewhere together, I promise you.” Participant
“When you get the finished product, were making superstars out here…the main thing why we do what we do is to show Cambridge the forgotten people who actually live here, and we’re trying to put them where they deserve to be.” Support Worker, Romsey Mill
