JAMBOREE – BOOKING and info on line

We are deeply disappointed to have to announce that we have decided to cancel our Music Jamboree due to be held on the 24th July. It is not an easy time at the moment for us to deliver such an ambitious creative event as our Jamboree was designed to be. We are now looking a year ahead to hold our Music Jamboree next summer at the same time of year. We do hope this has not disrupted your plans too badly. We will keep our mountain of musical instruments polished up and ready for next year. 

With kindest wishes to all those young MUSIC LOVERS out there. 

Keep singing, playing and dancing!

Natalie Covell, 

Organiser for the Music Jamboree at Yarrells School   

We are delighted to be able to bring some summer holiday fun to music makers of the youngest ages, in association with Yarrells School and our music charity, Poole Society For Young Musicians, supported by Soundstorm it is Music Jamboree time – think holidays, islands, waves, beaches, sailboats, warm nights and summer SUN! So put on your holiday gear and join us on our morning of musical adventures with a summer holiday vibe.

No musical experience is needed. There will be opportunities for children to play lots of instruments, sing and dance, inspired by experienced, music loving teachers. Afterwards, there will be the chance for all participants to take part in a short concert, together with some of our older summer school participants, to further inspire future music making. You are welcome to bring picnics to enjoy afterwards in the wonderful school grounds.
