Pupils from across the UK take to the stage in a competition to win music support for their school.

Acts aged 14-19 from across the UK will perform original music in front of a panel of judges and a crowd of KS2 and KS3 students for the chance to win a year of music support for their school.

Auditions have now closed for this year, and up to eight acts will be chosen to perform at the event on 6th November. The panel will give constructive feedback and tips to all of the performers and one act will be selected as the winner. 

Hosted by Jess Gillam, plus a special performance from last year’s winner Amity Miller, the show is said to get your classes cheering as they experience the thrill of live music at the Royal Albert Hall.

Watch what to expect below….

Tickets for the Future Makers event are available here and teachers can add a pre-show 30 minute tour of the Royal Albert Hall to their visit. 

A specially written resource pack, containing lesson plans and top tips will also be available to support the trip.

Pupils can tour the Royal Albert Hall to find out more about its incredible history. 

A Day in the Life tour provides insider knowledge on the running of the venue and can be tailored to the age and interests of the group. From Ed Sheeran and Adele to Harry Potter book launches and Bond premieres, students can discover how each member of the team brings these events to life.

Discover Music, Maths and Science is another options, where visiting students take part in a 75-minute workshop that explores volume and frequency, sound and light waves and the speed of light vs the speed of sound while creating their own piece of music.
