Kyle’s Dream

£1,690 of £5,000 goal

Raised by 15 people in 10 months

Kyle’s Dream is as it sounds. The Dreams our son Kyle had when he was 16; dreams of being a musician, songwriter, singer, actor, artist and much more. He would have achieved every one of those dreams, but tragically these ambitions were cut short when he died suddenly from a brain haemorrhage when just 16.

We dedicated our lives to his vision, working with talented young people within a successful charity. Then, in what was to be our 10th year, our lives were devastated by those we trusted. That story is yet to be concluded, but we could no longer feel worthless, or let circumstance beyond our control cut Kyle’s legacy short.

Now: Kyle’s Dream is a community hub for music and creativity;  like a phoenix from the ashes, in the building we once called, and can once again call home. The goal is set at £5000 to give us six months of security, allowing us to build up from the inside, knowing we have a roof over our heads.

The Kyle’s Dream unit, on Whitby Street South, is ideal for music and creative pursuits, as it was built from scratch to a bespoke plan - aimed at offering many different activities in one place. 
The rooms are still as intended, with up to three band practice rooms, three 1-1 teaching rooms, two smaller rehearsal rooms and a welcoming reception and office area.

We are steadily returning the facility to its prior potential and offer quality tutoring and mentoring to the talented young (and not so young) people in Hartlepool.
Rooms are also available for vocal and instrument tutors to run their own private sessions; and also to bands needing a readily accesible rehearsal space, in a comfortable and secure environment.

Kyle’s Dream is also proud to house a fully digital recording and rehearsal studio owned and ran by ‘Stems Recording Studio’.

In the new year, members of the team, helmed by like minded parents of talented youngsters, will launch a community fundraising group to work with young people and the wider community to raise funds and promote all of our creative pursuits.

If you are a tutor looking to hire a teaching room or a band wanting a regular rehearsal space please get in touch with Kyle’s Dream via our Facebook page @kylesdream2007 or through the website www.kylesdream.co.uk Of course you can also call us on 01429 223776 (with answering machine), or email info@kylesdream.co.uk or kylesdream07@gmail.com

Thank you ALL for always believing in us.

Following a fabulous week of equipment donations and interesting meetings, we would like to once again thank the great people of Hartlepool and the wider region for their generosity.

The money raised so far has purchased our over door sign (so now people can can find us!), along with two basic computers for Ian and I to use to get cracking on all of the administrative infrastructure. Finally we were able to add to the equipment donations to ensure that every room was ready to go

Thank you all

We are off to a great start, but still need more help to make sure we can make Kyle’s Dream into the creative hub and home of music and media that once thrived at Whitby Street South.

Let’s do this!
