To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria's birth at Kensington Palace we have teamed up with the Royal College of Music to explore the evolution of brass music. From military bands to bhangra, New Orleans jazz to today's pop – this 40 minute show will take you across 200 years of global history.

Brass Revolution! is a new show that will be performed on the Main Stage of The Great Exhibition Road Festival – a brand new free festival taking place 29-30 June on Exhibition Road, South Kensington.

Experience the innovation and fun of brass music and see what happens when the Prince Regent's Band, who perform on original 19th-century instruments, meet modern funk players.

Expect music that inspires, surprises and makes you dance! Join us on the Main Stage.
