Canons High School is thrilled to announce that our student band JJ Jam have been invited to perform in front of over 10,000 people at the opening of the Rock Assembly event at Wembley Arena on the 1st of July. The band has been awarded this exciting opportunity following their fantastic victory in this year’s Act 10 talent competition to find the best school band in the UK. It is a great honour for the band to have been asked to perform at this hugely prestigious event, considered the biggest and best school event in the UK. Previous performers include Professor Green, Ella Eyre and the Saturdays, to name but a few so we are extremely proud that JJ Jam will be able to add their name to this illustrious list of artists. The school’s excitement and pride in JJ Jam’s huge success was echoed by the band’s lead singer…..
‘When we found out we had won and made it to Wembley Arena we were so excited. This isn’t something you see every day where you start your school band and get the opportunity to perform at one of the biggest stages in London. We’ve been working towards an opportunity like this now for the past few years or so and it really has showed us that hard work does pay off and we want to send that message across to all young people in England to show them that they can achieve whatever they want as long as they put their mind to it. It will all be worth it. We realise that this huge opportunity comes about because of the vision and dedication of Transformation Trust and our school, Canons High, and we as a band JJ Jam would like to thank them both for this chance as it means the world to all of us.'
