Bongos and Brass


Our very own charismatic presenters, percussion superstars Owen and Olly, were joined by best mates Thistle Brass in an interactive concert which moved effortlessly from hilarious musical mayhem to stunning virtuoso performances. There were lots of chances to participate and have a laugh with the performers - everyone got to see the instruments up close and learn more from some of the best young professionals in the UK!

See below for some quotes from our Bongos and Brass quiz entrants when asked: 'What was your favourite part of the concert?'


  • Presented by Owen Gunnell and Oliver Cox
