The Beyond Words #Hit the right note has gained its name simply because the whole things is total indescribable – there are no words that can do justice to give explanation to it.
It is an arena tour producing high quality performance by local young people who will be performing alongside world renown artists. For our 2019 we already know that ventriloquist and comedian, Paul Zerdin, winner of America’s Got Talent, will join us. Other members of the cast will be announced shortly.
At its heart is a big ambition.
We want to provide young people with life-changing opportunities and experiences.
They discover new things about themselves, and we support them to become the best version of themselves.
Our young people come from schools, colleges, and universities from all areas.
They are from all backgrounds.
Because we want as many of them as possible to be involved in our amazing events, there is no cost for schools to be involved.
