WORDS were the theme of the latest Bandit music workshop at Maidenhill School in Stroud.

The three-day rock and pop workshop organised by Kevin Howlett saw students, aged from eight to 16, write and record a song during this half term week.

The workshop culminated with a live performance at the Sub Rooms in Stroud on Thursday night.

The prime function of the Bandit workshops is to give young people from all backgrounds the opportunity to gain experience in musicianship, creative song writing and performance skills.
