Five schools from West Sussex are preparing for the 2016 Be Your Best Rock Challenge southern finals.
The Academy Selsey, Worthing College and The Angmering School qualified for the Southern Open Champions final for seniors and will compete on June 20 and 21.
Rustington Community Primary School qualified for the Southern J Rock Champions final for juniors and will compete at Portsmouth Guildhall on June 22.
Then Durrington High School will compete for the Southern Premier Champions title on June 25, competing against schools from Dorset, Hampshire, Buckinghamshire, Surrey, London and the Isle of Wight.
The 2016 Dream Big Shine Bright Tour features five southern finals at Portsmouth Guildhall, with top teams from schools across the region taking part.
The teams have spent the last few weeks finalising their performances following their regional heats. For the finals, they will spend the day at the venue rehearsing, watching and supporting the other schools before competing in a spectacular evening show.
The Be Your Best Rock Challenge events aim to inspire, engage and motivate young people to make healthy and positive lifestyle choices.
Event manager Sophie Campbell said: “Each show provides the opportunity for young people to experience an adrenalin-based high through performing live on a professional stage rather than using tobacco, alcohol or other drugs.”
Last year, the southern finals attracted more than 5,430 people. Tickets for 2016 are still available from the box office on 08444 539062.
