Apply now for Under Siege!

Rochester Castle is soon to be Under Siege for the seventh year running – and MidKent College students can now apply.

Young people from across Medway are set to showcase their musical talents on Sunday, 20 July, following musical giants such as UB40, who will be performing to a sell-out crowd on the same stage just days before.

Under Siege is part of Medway’s Festival of Music, and gives some of the area’s most gifted young performers the chance to perform on the Castle Concerts stage to as many as 4,500 people.

Performers aged between 13 and 19, who are living or learning in Medway, can apply from Tuesday, 1 April, and have until noon on Thursday, 1 May, to submit their applications.

Successful acts will be told by Wednesday, 7 May, if they have made it through to the auditions, which will be held on Sunday, 18 May at the College's Medway Campus.
