Celebrating our young people’s achievements!
Our first ever OnSide Awards will take place at the iconic Royal Albert Hall on the 17th November 2019: an entertaining afternoon of exceptional talent, high emotion and rousing celebration!
This event will be a spectacular occasion, bringing together the whole of the OnSide community to celebrate our young people, volunteers and staff. Built around a 25-piece live orchestra, music and dance performances from both high-profile contemporary artists and our very own talented young stars, will bring the show to life! This is an incredible opportunity for our young performers, ‘a once in a lifetime’ for many.
Talented young people from across the country took to the stage on the 17th November and performed alongside world-renowned artists to an audience of thousands and HRH Prince Harry at the OnSide Youth Zones Awards!!

OnSide Awards 2019 was made possible thanks to a hugely generous donor who’s passionate about supporting young people and celebrating their achievements. We were extremely lucky to work with TBI Media, a very experienced production company, who has an impeccable track record of producing large scale shows, including productions for the BBC at the Royal Albert Hall.
OnSide 2019 was supported by musicians from the Chineke Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall – supporting all the performances throughout the evening.
Chineke! Orchestra is a British orchestra, the first professional orchestra in Europe to be made up of majority black and minority ethnic musicians. The orchestra was founded by musician Chi-chi Nwanoku.
Chineke!’s motto is: ‘Championing change and celebrating diversity in classical music’. The organisation aims to be a catalyst for change, realising existing diversity targets within the industry by increasing the representation of BME musicians in British and European orchestras.
