As part of the FUTUREPROOF youth music festival, Ashfield's Pratten Park Bowling Club gave the stage to some of our fabulous young talent in the Inner West. The festival is a not-for-profit, volunteer run event that aims to showcase and support the next generation of musicians. In late April and early May, the iconic bowling club collaborated with FUTUREPROOF to host two dedicated live music events. They were wonderful, free community events, and featured top-notch musicians from all around the Inner West, Sydney and beyond.

The most recent event was hosted last Sunday. The Pratten Park Bowlo put on a highly anticipated big family and youth bands day.

This whole-day event kicked off in the early afternoon with a special family session which included affordable kids meals, free lawn bowling, and a toddler play area for the little ones. Families were treated to a sensational live performance by sixteen year old, AJ Stanton - a singer-songwriter, poet, producer and self taught multi-instrumentalist. Thank you to the Pratten Park Bowling Club and FUTUREPROOF for organising these fantastic, family-friendly events in Ashfield.
