On May 16th, The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, announced the winners of his first ever Culture Seeds Awards, recognising the significant positive impact local community culture projects have on the capital.

Club Soda was amongst the ten winners from across the city who were presented with the Culture Seeds Awards, which highlighted how culture can bring Londoners together and empower communities.

Members of Club Soda’s new band, System Experience, were at the City Hall event to receive the ‘Made by Young Creators Award‘, which was awarded in recognition of the Soda Beat Bands project that supports young musicians with learning disabilities to take their music to the next level.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “I want to congratulate all the winners for their excellent work – you are proof that culture can benefit us all. Culture has the power to bring communities together and gives young people positive opportunities to discover their creative talent and to achieve their ambitions. Culture can be a powerful tool to steer young Londoners away from crime and criminal gangs and towards education and employment. I’m determined that all Londoners have the opportunity to gain from the benefits culture can bring to their lives, which is why I have invested in Culture Seeds, so that our small grants that can help make a big difference.”
