The Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Haywards Heath joined many local residents, business owners and musicians to the relaunch of Rok Skool, where they were treated to a one-of-a-kind evening of entertainment at Rok Skool’s new premises on the Bridge Road Business Estate.The evening also saw the launch of Sound Strategies, a new venture under the Rok Skool umbrella, which will offer immersive corporate ‘away day’ experiences.

Town Mayor, Cllr Stephanie Ingelsfield, said: “Duncan and I went to the Rok Skool relaunch and it was a fabulous evening of live music and lively conversations. We rubbed shoulders with performers and promoters of the local music scene and enjoyed 3 hours of live music from Rock’N’Roll, to 80’s hits, to acapella, to solos, duos, trios and whole bands, all performed by local artists and, of course, teachers at Rok Skool, and what a blast we had!

“The event was an opportunity to bring together sponsors like the Adelphi Group, local businesses, teachers of Rok Skool, parents of young aspiring performers, and more. It was an unforgettable evening of live music and community interaction. Rok Skool wants to make music playing available to all, while also using its powers to open the horizons of children of all sorts of backgrounds and abilities. At the same time Rok Skool wants help businesses reach their potential by using the power that music has to make teams bond while creating something fun and enjoyable.”

Sarah Harrison, Head of Business at Rok Skool, adds
