MUSIC technology students from Wiltshire College are hosting a live music event in Salisbury to get people in the mood for Christmas.

A group of first year students, under the project name Coda, are hosting the event at the Royal British Legion, Endless Street, on December 14.

Alex Crossley and Jonny Shering will be performing as well as Lily McCauley and Laura Jenkins, who have both been on the Salisbury live music scene for more than a year.

Things Behind the Sun, from Salisbury, and Area 53, from Warminster, who both have a large following, will also be performing.

The musicians are either on a course at Wiltshire College or have band members who are.

Miss McCauley said: “We’re combining two things everyone loves, Christmas and live music.

“It’s guaranteed to leave you buzzing for Christmas and with a renewed faith in Salisbury’s live music scene.

“We want to thank the Royal British Legion in Salisbury as they are always very supportive to the college course and let us hold events there.”

The students are organising the event as part of their course and hope to put on bigger events next year.

They hope the event will follow the success of a popular drum and bass night they organised at the Music Box in Salisbury on November 2.

Coda Live! starts at 7.30pm and is for over 16s, with a bar available for over 18s who can produce some identification.

There is a suggested donation of £1 on the door, which Coda will use for future music events.
