Being at the Royal Albert Hall was a fantastic experience and I would recommend it to anyone. At the Royal Albert Hall we heard a vast range of outstanding music, from Mammoth Sound rapping, to Ripple Escolar de Samba drumming, to Jazz in My Pants giving a spectacular performance involving a rather strange megaphone.

One of the amazing acts that were preforming was call Flats and Sharps who got their name by typing ‘music’ into Google and the first thing that come up (flats and sharps) they took as their name. Flats and Sharps play excellent bluegrass music with the aid of: a guitar (played by Josh Aubrey), a banjo (played by Kirk Bowman), a mandolin (played by Mikey Ponsford) and a double bass (played by Liam Fitzharris). Not only did these four amazing players deliver a mind blowing performance, they also engaged the crowd in such an enthusiastic way you couldn’t help but join in with their brilliant blue grass music.

Another one of the brilliant performances at the Royal Albert Hall on the 13th was a small hand bell group from Carew Manor School called Bells Angels. This unique group played two fantastic pieces Run by Snow Patrol and Baby by Justin Bieber. I was intrigued when I heard their brilliant cover of Run and even though I don’t like Justin Bieber I enjoyed their version of Baby. Their band only contains seven young people: Mark Ewers, Ryan Giddings, Dana Marcie-Xavier, Talissa Nutall, Jonathan Pugh, Claire Rich and Zoe Shearman.
