The Kids Are Alright!

Throughout half-term (24th October to 1st November), One child goes free to the British Music Experience with every full priced adult ticket purchased. Oh Yeah!

They can get hands on in the Gibson Interactive Studio and take lessons on guitar, drums, keyboards, or record their own track in the Sennheiser vocal booth.

In the Dance The Decades booth they can bust a move in their very own video and save all their efforts to view again online at home.

All this, plus over 600 pieces of amazing music memorabilia brought to life across seven decades of Britain’s musical history.  Whether it’s facts about Amy Winehouse or Dizzee Rascal, their very best version of ‘Bleeding Love’, tunes they’ve learnt on drums or guitar from their favourite artist, it’s all saved onto their unique Smarticket.

When at home they can then log onto their PC with their unique MyBME number and download more information on their areas of interest, watch their own dance video and download 3 free tracks on iTunes.

The Beatles

This guitar was presented to Paul McCartney in 1964, following an agreement between Brian Epstein and Selmer that McCartney would endorse their new range of bass guitars with a personalised tag attached to the neck. Once the presentation had been made to McCartney, it subsequently went missing – it is claimed that Selmer either kept it back for exhibition purposes or it was sent to McCartney and lost on the way – but resurfaced years later.
