Education and Schools
One of the Festival’s key objectives is to encourage younger people to attend classical music events. As well as offering a discount for under 18s at most events, we also engage with schools to bring classical music to them.
During their visit to the 2014 Summer Festival, we asked the Orchestra of St Johns to visit Churchill Park School and the results were amazing! The education link continued into the 2014/15 Winter Season, with the Badke Quartet making music with local primary schools.
In the last two years we have continued to work with Norfolk Music Hub's Jessican Berners and local composer and musician Jane Wells to support classical music workshops in local primary schools. In November 2016 we featured the results of the hard work of the young musicians at St Martha's Catholic Primary School at our Coffee Concert, where they performed with the Snowden-Sir Duo.
We are always open to offering group discounts to schools for various concerts, so please get in touch if you would like to arrange a trip or find out more about our education offer.
We are pleased to offer 50% discounts for under 18s on the majority of our concert tickets. This initiative is supported by The Ruth Fermoy Memorial Fund.
