Bigga Fish is a social enterprise providing a performance platform for young creatives and education in events management and marketing for 14 to 17 year olds.
To work towards a vision that brings the passion and creativity of young people into one integrated solution. We work to address the significant problem of the lack of resources and opportunities for inner city youth. We strive to continuously provide high quality performance and work opportunities to young creatives through events, workshops, training and development.
We have had 15 years of delivering dynamic opportunities to young people.
We aim to nurture our Street Teams through the development of their transferable life-long skills to then take on into their chosen career.
Our Mission Statement:
As well as our ever-growing Street Team, we also deliver events to showcase new musical talent. We have put on over 150 events and engaged with over 408,866 young people. We have given performance opportunities to 1,084 people through artist engagement and development. Our 70 grass roots and community partners have helped with over 400 hours of engagement with young people. Events such as our Urban Classic Prom run by Bigga Fish, BBC and Serious has received a broadcasting figure of over 13 million in the past year.
Our rule of thumb is ‘Think Bigga, Be Bigga’.
'Doing the BBC Urban Proms with Bigga Fish has opened a whole new world of opportunity.'
