Discovering The BRIT

Bold, adventurous and caring, The BRIT School  – the place where a young Adele Adkins wrote two of her first songs, where Jessica Cornish aka Jessie J developed her performance skills and Tom Holland aka Peter Parker/Spiderman honed his acting talent –  ranks as one of the world’s finest performing arts schools.  Over three decades The BRIT has helped blaze an array of British talent across the globe, with its alumni garnering Grammys, Oscars and BAFTAS along the way.

In this compelling documentary and with unparalleled access, broadcaster Maggie Lee discovers how this extraordinary school, supported by the iconic BRIT Awards got started against the odds, and how it engages with young people from all backgrounds, offering them a fully-rounded education whilst providing a wonderful outlet for their passion and creativity across music, film, theatre, dance, design and other arts.


From April 1st, Discovering The BRIT- an audio documentary will be available to listen inflight on long haul for an year.  It will be inflight exclusively for British Airways for 3 months and then will be available on a platform (TBC).
