Blake, girlfriend of Livewire tutor Rich Panrucker will be raising money for Epping-based disabled charity Ace Activities which provides creative classes for those with learning difficulties and autism.
We’re very proud to be sponsoring these two young runners and wish them the very best with the marathon!

The rock school are looking for donations from local businesses to raffle and raise money. To offer a donation, please contact Simon at

Tickets for the concert are priced at £7 each and can be bought from the Rhodes box office.

The concert will start at 5pm.

Free taster sessions are available at Livewire Rock Academy for adults and children who want to learn how to play electric guitar, bass and drums.

The schools offer a unique “jam session” as part of every lesson where students play together in a band format, a huge boost to their progress and development as a musician.
