Originally published in 1978, The Snowman, created and illustrated by Raymond Briggs has become one of the world’s most popular children’s books selling in excess of 8.5 million copies worldwide and being translated into over 15 languages. This well-loved book was adapted for screen by producer John Coates, leading to the Oscar nominated animation with iconic score which first aired in 1982 and has been broadcast on a global scale including Asia, Europe and North America.
East London Brass was established in 1909. Under the baton of Jayne Murrill, the band rocketed into the British Championship Section (the premiership of brass bands) in 2012, and over the past few years it has been sought after for classical concerts, recordings and high-profile art projects. It takes part in competitions regularly throughout the UK and Europe. The band is home to 30 players from all over the UK and the world, although its musical director Jayne grew up just a few miles from its rehearsal base in Walthamstow.
