Love singing songs from the musicals? This singing-packed week on the 2 – 6 August 2021 will enable children to get back to singing and performing the songs they love!

Over the week children will be exploring their voices in a healthy and fun way. Lead by expert vocal tutors from Bristol Plays Music, participants will learn about their voices and sing their favourite songs from the musicals.

With a programme covering modern musicals to Disney songs, we will be singing, playing and dancing our way through the week. There will also be an informal performance at the end of the week on Friday the 6th of August.

The focus for this week is enjoyment, with no requirements except enthusiasm!

Outline of a typical day:


After welcoming students and getting them settled we will warm up together, learning fun vocal warm-ups and songs to get their voices ready for singing and getting their minds ready for an enjoyable and productive day. Then, students will split into smaller groups with their vocal leaders, where they explore fun and creative repertoire.


Packed lunches will be eaten, hopefully in the sunshine (we also have a large hall space for rainy days, just in case).


After lunch, the children will have the chance to enjoy a variety of activities that include arts and crafts, mindfulness and wellbeing, stage-tech demos and more.

Further information

The safety of our participants is our utmost priority and they will need to bring a packed lunch, snacks and water bottle with them – all allergies and medical information will be required before the event.

Participants will also be required to comply with any Covid-19 restrictions in place at the time.

We offer a variety of bursaries and subsidised instrumental opportunities for children and young people for further information see here.

We’re changing

On Wednesday 23 September 2020 Colston Hall changed its name to Bristol Beacon, and this means we’re changing too.

Bristol Plays Music is run by Bristol Music Trust, the charity that also runs the venue formerly known as Colston Hall. These two organisations will soon unite under one name: Bristol Beacon.

Click below to find out more about how we’re changing, watch our name announcement, and discover how we want everyone to share in the joy of live music.
