A Hull teenager has thanked a local arts scheme after becoming the first person in the city to win a Gold Arts Award.

Molly Brown, 19, was handed the prestigious award by Trinity College London and will now go on to study music at British and Irish Modern Music Institute (BIMM) in Manchester later this year.

The accolade, which is supported by the Arts Council England, was awarded to Molly after she spent a year studying with local programme Creative Voice.

She first became involved with the scheme when she was just 12 and she said she wouldn’t be going to study music in Manchester if she had never joined the group.

She is a member of Hull Rhythm Pixies and over the past five years has performed at Musicport at Bridlington Spa, Freedom Festival, Hull Carnival and the National Centre for Early Music in York.

Molly said her participation in the group had given her extra confidence to perform in front of large audiences.

Ruth Drake, Arts Development Officer for Hull City Council said everyone in the city is very proud of what she has achieved and the past few years have seen her develop as a singer.
