More than 200 primary school children from Leeds will be taking to the stage on Monday 23rd July to perform in this year’s spectacular Big Samba event.
The show, which takes place at Leeds’ iconic First Direct Arena, is designed to entertain and inspire over 3000 teachers at the close of the first day of Teach First’s conference.
Big Samba is an annual event supported by Leeds Music Education Partnership (LMEP) and led by ArtForms Music in collaboration with Louder Than Life. Launched in 2016 to tie in with the Rio Olympics, Big Samba has worked with over 1250 children across 30 primary and secondary schools. It provides a brilliant opportunity for children – many of whom who have had little or no exposure to live music – to perform in public.
We are delighted that the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress will be in attendance at this year’s Big Samba and wish everyone involved the very best of luck!
