A look back at the wonderful Proms in the Playground

On Friday the 29th of September 2023, children at Beck Primary School in Shiregreen, Sheffield joined the thousands of other pupils across nine inner-city schools who have experienced playing a brass instrument. The event was live-streamed to friends and family, with parents and teachers in attendance.

Helen Minshall, Youth Development Brass Specialist at Brass Bands England, was delighted to see so many young people getting involved. “It has been absolutely fantastic. It's been non-stop, full of life, full of music. Every school we've visited has had between 30 and 60, sometimes up to 90 instrumentalists playing everything from pBuzzes to cornets and trumpets.”
