Hubbub - Free Music Festival for Children and Young People

Hubbub 2020 - Our first virtual festival!

Whilst the COVID-19 restrictions meant it wasn't possible to bring hundreds of children together for our usual Hubbub festivals, that didn't mean that we couldn't still have a day of fantastic musical fun!  

On Tuesday 23rd June, we held a day of free online workshops for the children and young people of Cornwall.  Over 90 schools and 6000 children signed up for this event!  The day included the following workshops:

- Beatboxing with world champion Beatbox SK Schlomo

- South African Gum Boot Dancing

- Samba Drumming

- Samba Dancing

- Body Percussion

- Music and Mindfulness

- Rainbow Pond Music for younger children

The day got off to a great start with a vocal warm-up by the Hub's Vocal Strategy Lead, Angela Renshaw

We are hoping that we will be able to have live workshops once again in 2021 but this will depend on COVID-19 restrictions next year.

Hubbub 2019 - Free Workshops for Young People of all ages!

In 2019 we again held two festivals, one in Wadebridge and one in Heartlands.  These events were attended by nearly 1500 children!
