#PromsInThePlayground - take part!

Learn all about the Proms in the Playground initiative here

This years #PromsInThePlayground will take place 8 - 26 July 2024. All brass bands and schools and invited to take part!

Now an annual event in its fourth year, #PromsInThePlayground is the initiative that encourages community bands to connect with their local schools by offering a performance in their playground. As well as getting young people excited about brass banding, this initiative will help bands forge and strengthen relationships with organisations around them. For those bands that want to go beyond just a performance, the initiative is an ideal opportunity to offer a taster session so school children can learn about the opportunities in your brass band.

It's also a chance for bands to:

  • Participate in a national initiative
  • Benefit from #PromsInThePlayground promotion from Brass Bands England
  • Make new connections for your band
  • Gain free advice and support from the BBE Brass Foundations team
  • Support the players of the future 

…and be a part of an enthusiastic community of musicians and educators across the country!

This year's campaign will take place between 8 - 26 July. Summer calendars get booked up quickly, so now's the time to book your performance! If you a confirmed event, let us know so we can support your project.

#PromsInThePlayground resources

For 2024, the Brass Foundations team have created all-new resources to be used in schools, targeted towards EYFS, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 and can be used either to prepare the children for your upcoming event or to reflect upon it, so pre- or post-event.
