And the Beat Goes On

Part of Nile Rodgers' Meltdown

Fresh new talent takes over our riverside stage in an afternoon of music and performance from BRIT School students.

In 1979, Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards wrote and produced the song ‘We Are Family’ for Sister Sledge. The single went all the way to number one on the charts.

Fast forward to 2019, and the We Are Family Foundation has been instrumental worldwide in promoting cultural diversity while nurturing and mentoring the vision, talents and ideas of young people.

Taking that same sentiment, we present young talent from the constantly growing roster of the BRIT School.

The BRIT School is the UK’s first and leading performing arts and technology state school, providing an education for 1,300 pupils aged between 14 and 19.

The school’s alumni include Adele, Amy Winehouse, Rizzle Kicks, Kate Tempest, Leona Lewis and The Kooks.

Located in Selhurst, Croydon, the school opened in 1991 with the support of the Department of Education and the British Record Industry Trust (BRIT Trust).
