Festival of Youth

Each summer, Newham Music invites hundreds of young people to participate in immersive musical activities and concerts through singing, playing, and performing at our Festival of Youth showcase. These interactive days are designed to celebrate the talent of every child throughout Newham. Through their participation, students will:

-build their musicianship skills, including performing with others.
-gain a great sense of accomplishment being a part of a large-scale production.
-learn and play songs together with children from other schools, cultivating their social skills and boosting their self-esteem through the enjoyment of music.
-have the chance to perform in the award-winning venues such as the Theatre Royal Stratford East, the Troxy, and even the Barbican.  

Festival of Youth 2018 will take place on 11th July at the Theatre Royal Stratford East. The theme of ‘INSPIRE’ will take students on a journey through popular music and activities, coming together to show that our young people are the real inspiring heroes of Newham!
