An evening of sonic delights is set to please music lovers while raising money to help youngsters struggling with mainstream education.

Not-for-profit event Wax100 will be staged at Outlaws Yacht Club on New York Street, Leeds city centre, on Thursday August 14 from 7pm to 11pm.

It will feature renowned DJ Tom Smith (pictured), who has recently played alongside Gilles Peterson and Mr Scruff; live electronica band Capua Collective and Leeds DJ Barry Da Funk, resident DJ at Belgrave Music Hall & Canteen. Between them they will provide a mixture of live music and vinyl-only DJ sets.

The suggested contribution of £3 per person, payable on the door, will go to MAP (Music and Arts Production), which provides alternative education for 12 to 16-year-olds who are having difficulty accessing mainstream education. The charity, which runs an education project and arts centre, uses art and music to promote awareness and cohesion.
