‘We don’t need no education’ sing Tower Hamlets pupils in O2 Pink Floyd show

Tower Hamlets pupils will sing “we don’t need no education” at the O2 arena as part of a special Pink Floyd event this month.

More than 95 pupils from 12 secondary schools across the borough will on stage for former Pink Floyd member Roger Waters’ show.

The teens will be projected against a 240ft wall on stage as they sing iconic Pink Floyd song Another Brick in the Wall.

The show – running from Wednesday May 11 to Wednesday May 18 – is part of Roger Waters’ 2011 European tour The Wall.

Karen Brock, head of Tower Hamlets Arts and Music Education Service (THAMES), said: “I am delighted that the young people have this opportunity to shine on stage. Music is a fantastic vehicle for the development of young people’s skills, not just musical, but also their social, emotional and intellectual skills.

“The THAMES team is committed to ensuring that the young people continue their musical journey, and that their hard work, commitment and enthusiasm for music continue to be fully recognised and rewarded.”
