On Monday the 17th of March, 22 talented learners from Swiss Cottage performed at the Royal Albert Hall as part of Camden Music Service’s biennial Music Festival. Learners from Holly, Pine, Redwood, Gandhi, Hawking and Rosa Parks performed a range of songs including ‘Walking on Sunshine’.

The exciting event, hosted by comedian David Walliams and broadcaster Jon Snow was held in aid of Camden Council’s music service, which provides bursaries for disadvantaged children, music lessons and classes for pupils of all ages.

The Royal Albert Hall is one of the most famous venues in the world, regularly presenting some of the best known performers in a range of genres on its stage. It has played host to Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones and Elgar – but for one night only our learners along with nearly 2,000 other primary and secondary school students from other Camden’s schools were the stars at the Royal Albert Hall.

Our learners especially enjoyed the grand finally when thousands of balloons were released and floated down onto the main stage!
