After training at Community Music (now CM), Cathy and Sarah went on to run music sessions in Early Years, Primary and community settings and at festivals and fun days across London as Bangers & Smash.
Their enormously popular sessions have been successfully received in nurseries, children's centres, schools and libraries in Camden, Croydon, Greenwich, Haringey, Hackney, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Islington, Kensington, Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark, Waltham Forest, Westminster and Wandsworth.
While Sarah went on to garner fame on the folk scene with award-winning quartet, Flook, Cathy continues to teach, write and perform as Bangers & Smash – occasionally joined by Sarah as a special guest. She provides regular and bespoke music sessions and performances as well as entertainment for children’s parties. Fun, creative and educational, sessions include the opportunity to sing, play instruments and listen and move to music – both live and recorded – including original Bangers & Smash songs.
Bangers & Smash celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2017 and continues to educate and entertain little smashers across the capital!
