Virtual Festival of Youth 2020

13 July 2020

This year, join us from the comfort of your own home as we present the Festival of Youth 2020 online!

We might have been stuck at home, but that hasn’t stopped us from bringing hundreds of children and young people together over the last few months to share the joy of music-making – all online!

On Wednesday and Thursday the 15th and 16th of July, Newham Music will be live streaming highlight sessions of our most popular projects including the Newham Grooves, We Put the Wham in Newham, and the Academy end of term concert. We will also be sharing video content throughout the two-day festival. You can watch all of the sessions on our Facebook.
