TWO young entrepreneurs are staging their own night-time event at a prestigious village venue.Sam Jacobs and Will Clarke who are both 16 are holding a DJ event at the Rookery Manor in Rooksbridge. Will, who lives in Wedmore, said: "There's not a lot for people our age to do around the Cheddar area, so we wanted to do something that our all our friends can enjoy. And hopefully they'll bring other people with them."The Cross Rhythms event will feature seven DJs. Will said: "I've been a DJ for a while and done some gigs in Ibiza and in clubs in Bristol. We wanted to get House music out to youngsters in our area. "Basically we want to give people a good night out in a safe place."The event is not just for the under 18s, but for everyone who likes dance music. The event will include hip hop, RnB, house, hardhouse, trance and drum and bass. Will and Sam have organised the event themselves, from booking the venue and DJs, down to selling the tickets and promoting the gig. The Bridgwater College student are in the first year of a Music Technology course. They organised a similar event two years ago at Mark Village Hall and wanted to build on its success. Will said: "It was a sell-out and everyone said they wanted something like it again. "We both want to get into music when we are older. I would like to be an event promoter and DJ. I know Sam would love to own his own PA company hiring out band equipment."The disco will be held at Rookery Manor on February 23 from 7pm-2am. Tickets are £6 in advance or £7.50 on the door. Identification will be required by people wanting to buy alcohol.
