Are you ready to make some noise?

As part of this year's Little Day Out at Victory Square people are invited to make a recycled music instrument.

These instruments will then be used to set a world record for the largest "amateur trash band ensemble".

"We want everyone to get their rock star out," Lou-Darcie Lewis says.

"The idea is we can get everybody to do something together at the same time that reflects the unity in our community."

Lou-Darcie says people should bring pots, pans, old instruments and anything that makes a really good noise.

She says it is easy to find things that could be used lying around the house or garage.

"If you pick up a chopstick or spoon and start hitting things you soon find out what makes a noise."

Lou-Darcie says there will be an open workshop on the day to help people make recycled instruments.

The group then will try and make some music and set the world record for the biggest recycled trash band.

She does not believe a record in that area has been set before.

If anyone can spare some time to help out, making or decorating instruments they are asked to call Lou-Darcie on 548 1649.

The annual music festival and family event at Victory Square will be held on Sunday February 9.

The event will feature a line-up of local Victory musicians, including the Zomi Community Band.

Little Day Out co-ordinator Andrea Barker said each year as part of the festival it incorporates an interactive art project.

Last year it was a Mad Hatter's Tea Party and this year it is the mass junk-styled band.

Andrea says the Little Day Out is organised by the Victory Community Association.

The association's fundraising has added colour and equipment to the community over the past few years.

Its work includes the Chris Finlayson mural on the Victory On The Spot, the barbecues, the playground in Victory Square and it also supports Keep Victory Beautiful.

Musicians playing this year include Dayna Sanerivi, Crystal Set, The Tava Sisters, DOT, Smooth Cone Sounds and the Zomi Community Band.
