Sussex Steel originates from The Littlehampton Academy (TLA) Steel Band, which this year celebrates its 10th anniversary. Much has been achieved over this period by TLA Steel Band such as performances at the Royal Albert Hall, a week-long performance tour to Barcelona and last November it raised over £1,000 for BBC Children in Need by busking at Brighton station.
Following the success of TLA Steel Band, the organisers have identified a wider need for personal development amongst young people and to provide an alternative outlet to the internet and other digital media. In December 2014 this led a group of parent helpers to form Sussex Steel and successfully apply for charitable status, to extend steel pan activities to other schools within Sussex.
