BBC Music Day - Thirsk

BBC Music Day is a UK-wide celebration of everything we love about music with the aim of bringing people from different generations and communities together. It returns bigger and better for 2016 with Duran Duran and Laura Mvula live at Eden, Travis and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in concert, live music at 40 iconic bridges and unique musical celebrations across the UK, including a vegetable orchestra, led by Shaun the Sheep. There will be over 300 events marking the day across the country including a Songs of Praise Gospel flash-mob performance at Birmingham New Street station. Sheffield will showcase the best and most diverse mix of talent in public spaces with 22 planned events across the city which will be free to attend. Leeds is celebrating music from across the West Yorkshire region in a ‘Brass Bonanza’ and in Norwich there will be an eclectic range of music, such as Norfolk band Killamonjambo and the popular samba band, Rabo de Foguette.
