Could you earn a Blue Peter Music badge?
Blue Peter are encouraging music to their viewers by offering a specially designed badge to budding musicians.
A life-long fan of the popular BBC Children's show, Blue Peter, Ed Sheeran designed the badge, which children between 6 and 15 years old can apply for.
Applying for the badge is quite simple; along with a contact form and sending a picture*, there are three areas for the child to fill out:
- How do they enjoy making music
- Ask a grown up to share with them a musical memory
- List their three favourite songs/pieces and explain why do they like them
Receiving a Blue Peter badge is a fantastic achievement for a child, but also offers discounted entry to a lot of attractions - so not a bad idea with school holidays on the horizon!
Send the application via post to:
