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.  

See highlights below from Festival of Youth 2018 at the Theatre Royal Stratford East.
