Deal Festival’s BOLD AS education programme takes place in various primary schools in the Deal area and provides an exciting opportunity for young people in East Kent to learn a brass instrument and play creatively in a brass ensemble alongside professional musicians. Over the course of each year, the programme involves regular p-trombone and p-trumpet creative workshops with top-class professional musicians, an introductory whole school assembly session and public concerts at the Deal Festival. BOLD AS also provides training for local teachers and schools’ concerts. The programme has been supported by the Trust for the past two years.
