Hundreds of pupils from across the district will play their part in the Music Day whilst also taking part in a Guinness World Record attempt involving over 800 pupils who will try and break the world record for the number of people taking part in a Bamboo Tamboo*.
The current record is 661 people, and we currently have 800 + pupils signed up.
Entertainment will be provided by Bradley Johnson from Bradford. Bradley was a contestant on the BBC’s Let It Shine programme. He will be performing at lunchtime and then again before the event closes.
The primary-aged pupils will be taking part in workshops throughout the day but secondary pupils will perform for the crowds from 3.45pm onwards.
Tony Johnson, Bradford Council’s Head of Music & Arts, said: “This is a great event for the City and the district. We are delighted that the Third BBC Music Day will be held in our wonderful City Park.
“This is a great opportunity for the hundreds of young people to be involved and the entertainment and performances continue up until 8pm. It will also be a real boost for the pupils and the district if we can beat the Guinness World Record attempt.”
Michael Jameson, Bradford Council’s Strategic Director for Children’s Services, said: “This is an excellent event and we are thrilled Bradford is taking part again. The inaugural Music Day was held in Bradford in 2015.
“We have already had the #LoveBradford Guinness World Record success in City Park so for so many children to be involved in a further attempt is very exciting. We have so many talented pupils and it is good for so many of them to be involved in this event.”
