June 19 @ 13:15 - 15:30


Come along to the Bandstand, Windsor on Sunday 19th June 2022 and celebrate Father’s Day this year with a brand-new adventure by joining in a Platinum Jubilee Celebration – Fred and the Fantastic Tub-Tub.  Supported by the Arts Council England Platinum Jubilee Fund and Berkshire Community Foundation, this event is entirely free to attend.

1:15pm Workshop (1 hour) – Come and learn The Long Walk Jubilee Song, and be a part of the Tub-Tub Junkyard Orchestra. Children aged 7-11.  Sign-up, for free at [email protected]

2:30pm Performance (45 mins) – Bring a picnic, sit on the grass and enjoy the performance. All ages. Free to attend

Fred and the Fantastic Tub-Tub is a brand-new children`s work for orchestra and narrated by James Marangone and celebrity Zeb Soanes. When Fred`s green-fingered grandfather shows her a map to the mysterious island of Papa Nupi, he leads her on a summer holiday adventure that just might save the planet.

Dame Judi Dench, Patron says ‘Beautifully topical, Fred and the Fantastic Tub-Tub is a thrilling and wondrous adventure, where the power of music and nature inspire us all to make the world a better place.’ 

Children will have the opportunity to work with professional orchestra Orpheus Sinfonia, composer James Marangone and author/narrator BBC Newsreader Zeb Soanes in the junkyard orchestra. They will also learn the specially written Platinum Jubilee Song, The Long Walk. We will then all come together in a full performance at 2:30pm of these pieces for all to enjoy.

Absolutely no music experience necessary – come along, get involved and be part of this unique Platinum Jubilee celebration in these premiere performances.

Workshop includes singing the Jubilee song and joining the ‘junkyard’ orchestra procession. Come just with yourselves, or if you`re feeling creative see what instrument or outfit you can create out of the rubbish your household throws out. There will be a prize for the best ‘Junkyard Orchestra’ instrument and outfit. What will you make? A Yoghurt Pot Shaker? A hosepipe Horn? A Water Cooler Drum? Or something of your own invention?! Or will you make a costume/head-dress made out of rubbish.

There will be PRIZES for best Junkyard instrument and rubbish outfit

A Book signing will follow the performance.
