Agents Paul and Jonny are working hard on our script, while agent Lizzy is cooking up all sorts of design magic! Meanwhile Agents Gabriella, Oskar and Betty have been out in the field recording, playing, singing, composing, and more…
We are all so excited to meet again for rehearsals and our first in-school workshops at Ashmead School in Aylesbury this Summer Term. Stay tuned for news about our Autumn Term workshops in High Wycombe, Slough and Brent.

ARE YOU A TEACHER?
If so, please get in touch! We’re keen to perform at as many schools as possible in the coming months and years. We are particularly interested in hearing from primary schools with limited or no music provision in place. Our general manager Paula would be very happy to tell you more about the format of the performance, workshop and teaching resource.
