Land of Song Title Eng

A gloriumptious adventure for children across Wales 

As part of the Roald Dahl 100 celebrations in 2016, we're thrilled to have recently launched our Wales-wide schools project, Land of Song, supported by Lloyds Bank and the Colwinston Charitable Trust. 

Wales Millennium Centre and The Aloud Charity are joining forces to encourage primary schools across Wales to celebrate Roald Dahl with us through song.

Land of Song involves the creation of a vibrant new bilingual website to host free singing resources for key stage 2 pupils across Wales; and is supported by The Roald Dahl Estate and Can Sing. The website is now live and participating schools will receive their login details soon.

Every child aged 7-11 gets to be part of this schools celebration - music resources, teacher training and the chance to take part in a special celebratory performance in June 2016!
