Tender to film the Music for Youth Proms, 2018

Music for Youth is inviting proposals to film the Music for Youth Proms across three nights at the Royal Albert Hall in November 2018. We are seeking tenders from service providers to film the MFY Proms and also to produce 3 x souvenir DVDs for sale after the event. We may also wish to offer digital downloads. We will organise and pay for the DVD production; however, we would welcome advice on the best methods and platforms for retail.

About You

Submissions are welcomed from companies or freelance associates with a track record of working on relevant projects.

We are seeking a service provider who has:

  • An understanding of what it means to be a small charity with a large regular programme and bold ambitions

  • A track record of successfully producing high quality video, particularly where filming takes place in large-scale venues

  • An approach which embraces collaboration with the client

  • A willingness to ‘roll up your sleeves’ to get the job done

  • Ideally, experience of working in arts / culture / education sectors

About Us

Music for Youth (MFY) is a national music education charity. We believe in the power of music to transform young people’s lives. We run high impact festivals and events all over the UK. Each year, 60,000 young people aged 21 and under take part. We pride ourselves on our inclusivity and seek to engage young people of all backgrounds, and abilities. 91% of participants come from state schools and participation in our events is free.

In November, we will stage our annual MFY Proms over 3 nights at the Royal Albert Hall in London – with each night comprising a different concert. 3,000 young musicians from across the UK (1,000 per night) perform an eclectic mix of musical styles to an audience of friends, families, supporters and VIPs including sponsors, music education specialists and government ministers. High production values, including professional standard sound, lighting, stage crew and presentation offer those taking part in the concerts and the audience, a truly unforgettable experience. Performing groups’ genres and sizes vary greatly – from solo performers to orchestras, and the focal point of each night is a finale featuring all 1,000-young people.
