BIG BANG Banter: Children's Podcast 3 - 5 Apr 2021

For fun chats, interviews and features about adventurous music by and for children, download the first ever podcast made by our BIG BANG Ambassadors especially for our BIG BANG bubble 2021 online festival.

Our BIG BANG Festival Ambassadors are a group of children between the ages of 10 and 12 who are the eyes and ears of the festival every year. They advise us on the festival programme, interview artists, talk to audiences and introduce shows.

This year, they’ve been learning the ropes of podcast creation with the help of the team at Createschool. They have been researching their topic (music of course!), crafting crafty interview questions, thinking of fun features and learning to record and piece it all together.

The result is a fascinating new podcast for you to enjoy which captures their adventurous love of music and all things BIG BANG! Expect fascinating interviews, fun surprises and answers to curious questions! Tune in online across the Big Bang weekend and join our Festival Ambassadors on this music inspired journey.
