About The Long and Winding Road

Voices for a Better World stage their inaugural event at the world famous O2 Arena. This spectacular show brings together a staggering 4200 school children and a live orchestra to perform 34 Beatles tracks, including Ticket to Ride, A Hard Day's Night and Can't Buy Me Love.

Voices for a Better World promises to be a breathtaking show that will sell out the 02 Arena where 15,000 people will come to watch and listen to 4200 young voices and 500 young dancers - all seeking to inspire the audience and communicate the need for world change.

The purpose of this magnificent event is to raise substantial funds and awareness for dedicated children's charities Global Angels and Arts by Children - two international organisations that work at a grass-root level to support the needs of children in third world countries.

Voices for a Better World provides children and young adults with a great stage to channel their creative energy and providing opportunities for children is more important now than it has ever been. Research has shown that music directly enhances learning and spatial development, with beneficial effects on other subjects like Maths and English.

Voices for a Better World is the brainchild of Kevin Dowsett, Artistic Director of Theatretrain. Renowned for teaching drama and theatrics to some of today's most popular figures, including Catherine Tate, Martine McCutheon and Russell Brand, said:

"Today's news continually covers the sad and drastic state that our world is in from third world poverty, environmental issues to crime on the streets of Britain.  Voices for a Better World is a stunning showcase, which aims to give children an outlet and a chance to express themselves. Thousands of young children singing in one voice - what better and powerful way is there to communicate the need for change?"

This groundbreaking event, which gives children an unsurpassable opportunity to perform at one of the world's most acclaimed music venues, will be conducted and arranged by the legendary Robert Hyman, and promises to be one of the best Beatles cover concerts yet.

The performance features school children, aged between 10 and 14 years-old, from London and the South East. The way in which the children prepare for the performance is equally as challenging, as they only have a CD of the songs and two rehearsals in which to learn and practice.

The O2 Arena, what is now one of the most popular and vibrant venues in the world, plays host to the first of many concerts planned around the UK, with future planned events throughout the UK.
 
This magical event provides a perfect evening out for families, Beatles fans, theatre-goers and other children aspiring to perform on a stage of such magnitude.

Well known celebrities from the world of acting and music have begun to dedicate their support and Global Angels ambassador and singer-songwriter, Natasha Bedingfield, said:

"Music is a universal language. It is extremely important for kids to get involved in music, to realise that everyone has a voice; something to say that makes a difference to everyone around. This event gives them a chance to express themselves in a positive way by helping other people in the process."
