• Carnival of Animals Tour 2016

The Carnival of the Animals

Following our hugely successful 2015 tour of the BBC Ten Pieces we shall be touring schools throughout the South East of England with The Carnival of the Animals.

Hosted by secondary schools (see calendar for a school near you) for local primary schools the concerts are appropriate for EYFS, KS1, KS2. We also offer the host school the option of a concert just for their pupils.

“A big thank you for your performance of ‘Carnival of the Animals’ last week at St John’s Church in Tunbridge Wells.  The production was extremely entertaining and had the children enthralled… it was an extremely worthwhile visit and we wish to bring children to further productions should there be any next year.” C Long – Rosehill School Tunbridge Wells

Our concerts are performed by professional musicians and are fun, lively, interactive and educational. Free, downloadable teaching resources are available to accompany this programme.

“Just to let you know that our Year 5 and 6 children and teachers absolutely loved the concert at Sevenoaks School last week.  It was a real highlight.  Please pass on our appreciation to all those involved.  Thank you.” C Crawford-Usher – Wateringbury School
