Freckle is a marketing consultancy, focused on support for the 3rd sector, in all areas of business development, promotion, creative delivery and marketing.
The Artz Centres are a pair of creativity-fuelled community resource and events venues in Skelmersdale and Upholland, where local people can be themselves; by engaging in positive projects that inspire greater levels of resilience and confidence.
Our motto recognises: “It’s good to be different” and our values encourage all who walk through our doors to: Aim High, Work Hard, Take Pride, Respect and Be Yourself.
Through our Strategic Model, we aim to provide a diverse community with a variety of arts-inspired services to match; through the Artz Academy, Artz Education, Artz Productions and Artz Professional. Each of these aspects self-generates income streams for the business; income that is then re-invested straight back into our core community offer and the upkeep of our two vibrant community resources: the “Artz Centres” (Skelmersdale and Upholland).
Visit us online or on social media for more about or work and the latest productions and events!

Power of Music through music therapy, singing and sharing music deliver planned sessions that incorporate peer support and social interaction. Our music sessions are designed to help people and their families living with a long term condition such as dementia. Meeting people and sharing music on a regular basis encourages peer support creating important networking where people come together to share their experiences. The Power of Music CIC already has two Community Choirs called the “Songbirds” in West Lancashire. The project is to develop “Singing For Health” sessions delivered by some of our choir members and our choir facilitator within residential and day care settings for people living with a long term health condition such as dementia, COPD, stroke and mental health. The Power of Music has already worked with the British Lung Foundation, Stroke Association and the Alzheimer’s society.
Our aim is to help and support people who can be isolated and dis-empowered as a result of the advanced stage of their dementia or other long term health conditions. These musical and personal interactions identify and build upon areas still intact in a person suffering the losses associated with the later stages of Alzheimer’s or, other forms of dementia or stroke such as memory, physical capacities, personality changes and accompanying loss of identity. Power of Music can deliver a “Singing for Health” programme designed to support care staff to develop their understanding of how music can benefit and support the emotional needs of people with dementia in the context of a person-centred approach to dementia care.
