    You can find a quick reference guide for the optimum Crowdcast experience here.
  • We have limited free books to give away for use in the classroom. Sign up early for the chance to get a free copy for your school.
  • Not in the classroom or self-isolating? We are live streaming the event to Youtube and when you register with us we can send you the link so children can watch the performance live at home. Or if the timings don't work for you don't worry. Register and we'll send you a recording of the event to watch when the time is right.
  • During the live event there will be a 'chat' function available on Crowdcast where you will be able to comment and communicate.
  • There will be the opportunity for teachers to ask questions using the 'Ask A Question' button on Crowdcast. We cannot guarantee that all questions will be answered during the event, but we'll do our best!
