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.

Our 2024 borough-wide Festival of Youth will run from 29 June to 14 July and showcase the best of school and community music!
