Inspire your students with a live concert experience

Our BrightSparks concerts are inspiring live experiences for school audiences from Key Stage 1 all the way up to A Level. Each year we perform for around 10,000 students at our Southbank Centre home, with the chosen music and engaging presentation designed in line with National Curriculum objectives. Often this is the first time students will have encountered the thrill of a live orchestra, and it’s sure to be an unforgettable experience.

What’s included for teachers?

Concert bookings include free INSET sessions (at primary school level) and resources for teachers (at all levels), which cover ways to explore the repertoire and concert themes with your students before or in response to the concerts. We are always interested in seeing and hearing creative work made by schools inspired by BrightSparks concerts!
