The new 'Anything Goes' event at the BBC W1 Club is designed to bring together likeminded creative talents in the BBC - to perform - or as we put it "bring to life" - their creative skills at the BBC Club. The BBC has a hub of creative talent, both professionally and as hobbies, possibly the biggest in any business in the UK - every other person seems to have some creative hobby - and we see this as an exciting opportunity to discover these hidden talents.
We are calling out for creatives of all styles to sign up to perform at our monthly event - whether they be singer songwriters, soul artists, jazz artists, rappers, stand-up comedians, magicians, actors, writers, anything... Anything Goes!
The great thing about Anything Goes is - and it's in the title - we can literally try out anything. It's not focused on one particular style, talent or skill. It's a blank canvas, where we all dab in our creative brushstrokes to create an abstract event, with loads of different styles of performance. We can also provide opportunities to collaborate with others, for example if you are a writer who would like their work read up on stage, or a singer in need of a backing musician. The aim is also to give it the feel of a broadcasting event.
There's no pressure too. Just go up and perform. Whatever feels natural to you. Give it a go. We all support each other, and who knows where your talent can lead to...
The next Anything Goes event at the BBC Club is on Fri 28 April (from 6pm).
