#PromsInThePlayground Highlights

Thursday, 28 July, 2022

Across the first three weeks of July #PromsInThePlayground performances took place in schools across the country. What an amazing opportunity to spread awareness of brass banding in your local community! See some of our highlights of the summer below!

  1. Our very own Paul Mclaughlin appeared on First News Education TV explaining the importance of music tuition in schools.


  2. Regent Community Brass teamed up with Gospel Oak Primary School in Camden to play along with the Brass Students for their playground performance.

  3. Lancashire Youth Brass Band, Lostock Hall Memorial Band and Red Admiral Band joined forces to provide a 6-piece ensemble to inspire the next generation of brass players at Lostock Hall Primary School, playing popular tunes such as “The Wellerman” and “Shut Up And Dance” in an afternoon concert, with the music arranged by Lostock Hall MD, Ryan Broad. See the write up from Lancashire Music Hub here.

  4. Olney Brass got a whole herd of young brass players out on the school field for their two Proms In the Playground performances!

  5. In this epic whole-school effort, every class at Rickmansworth Park School performed a musical number! Years 5 & 6 performed a brass show, which also featured musicians from the Amersham Band organisation.


    There are more many more fantastic performances that took place this July - congratulations to all the bands and schools that took part. Proms in the Playground will be back next year from 3 - 21 July 2023. Save the date!
