We have lots of different musicians performing throughout the day, indoors and outside. Most of the day's events start around midday.


Check our Music Day event for details of artists and times.

BBC Blast will also be staging performances from grime collective Roll Deep and other up-and-coming artists.


If you're 13-19 years-old you can join some of their creative workshops like a theramin drop-in, or learn about make-up for the stage, film-editing and samba drumming.


Some of the sessions are booked up already, but some you can still just drop in to attend. BBC Blast is already at the Museum from now until Sunday.You'll find them in an bbc-blast-cropped.jpgoutside mobile studio at the front of the Museum by the main Cromwell  Road entrance.You can book and find more details on our BBC Blast event details or the BBC Blast website.
