The British Music Experience Launches Summer Holidays Programme

Throughout the summer the British Music Experience welcomes families of all ages to come along and experience the story of British Music through costumes, instruments, performance, memorabilia and some special activities exclusively this summer.

During the school holidays the British Music Experience really does have something for everyone from tots through teens all the way up to granny with highlights including the chance to get your hands on a top-flight electric guitar in the Gibson Interactive Instrument Studio, with experts on hand to give you some valuable tips, daily story time and sing along sessions for the little ones and craft sessions where kids can make a themed dream-catcher to take home.

Open Sessions - 22nd July to 3rd September 1 pm-3pm
Come on down to the British Music Experience where we will be hosting our summer Open Sessions. Meet our Visitor Experience Musicians who are on hand every day from 1 – 3 pm in the Gibson Interactive instrument studio. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced, unleash your inner musician.

Story Time Sessions - Everyday at 1.30pm
We’re hosting an interactive, fun for all the family, storytime session with a musical theme. Sing along to well-known tunes and come on an adventure with Dougie in the Summer of Love, meet his friends and help him solve some puzzles along the way. Suitable for all ages.

Craft A Dream Catcher - Everyday between 11am-3.30pm
In the spirit of the Summer of Love we're making dream catchers here at the British Music Experience. The workshop encourages kids to create take home craft - make sure to post your pictures of what you have made to us at the British Music experience. Free and fun for everyone.

The collection boasts outfits worn by legendary artists such as Freddie Mercury and Dusty Springfield, to the Spice Girls, Adam Ant and X Factor finalists not to mention musical instruments played by some of the world’s most renowned artists from Noel Gallagher to the Sex Pistols. There are hand written song lyrics from Adele, the original statues from the Brits and the Apple Corp front door from Saville Row.

Visitors are also able to get involved too. You can learn a musical instrument with the best music equipment available, from drum kits to keyboards. Even try your hand on a Gibson guitar in the Gibson Brands Interactive Studio. Teenagers will love to try their hand at being a rock star in the vocal booth and smaller children can enjoy the show and dance the decades in our dance pop routines studio!

After the main event browse an exclusive range of gifts, clothing, books and memorabilia from the Merch Store and you can rest those dancing feet with a selection of delicious snacks and meals in the Star Café.
