Prodige Tour hits Newcastle

The Buffet Crampon Prodige Instruments tour is in Newcastle today — so why drop in and enjoy the musical experience.

  The tour heads around the UK

Buffet Crampon is currently providing a unique opportunity for people to come along and experience their range of Prodige student wind and brass instruments.

After being in Barnsley yesterday the Prodige Tour drops in at Newcastle today (Wednesday 5th October) from 10.00am until 5.00pm.

People can come along and see just what the instruments are all about and try them out at Grainger Street Square.

Van packed

It's all packaged into a specially equipped van so mobility is no problem as the tour will head up to Scotland as well as down to Amersham over the next couple of weeks, so if you are nearby why not pop in and enjoy the experience.


The launch coincides with the launch of the Prodige Play App — a brilliant new educational tool to help young players develop their skills
