Hosted by the hugely talented YolanDa Brown, the show won “Best Children’s Programme (Pre-school)” at the Royal Television Society NW Awards in November 2019, and is touring the UK later this year!

Cbeebies asked to film us delivering one of our rainforest samba drumming workshops at Phoenix Primary School for their second season of the vibrant programme.

Our facilitators Ritchie, Juliana and Leigh worked with a great group of year 3’s to produce a short drumming and movement performance for their families, staff and fellow schoolmates!

It was such a fun day – pupils, staff and the Cbeebies team were brilliant to work with.


Dubbed as “Jools Holland for kids”, YolanDa’s Band Jam highlights musical diversity and the fun that music and performance brings to our lives and culture – which is so important to the health, wellbeing and togetherness of people of all ages. We’re so proud to be part of it!

The episode Jam#30: Street Beats aired at 10.15am on Sunday 9th February 2020.
