Radio 3 will be holding a special live event for Red Nose Day featuring violinist Nicola Benedetti, cellist Julian Lloyd Webber and a huge number of kazoos.
The Big Red Nose Show will be hosted by Radio 3 presenter Katie Derham – with help from Basil Brush – and will include both music and comedy.
The BBC Concert Orchestra, conducted by Johannes Wildners, will be joined by comedians Sue Perkins, Tim Vine and Marcus Brigstocke for the event. Audience members will also each be provided with a kazoo and invited to join in with an official Guinness World Record attempt to create the largest kazoo ensemble in the world.
Tickets are now on sale for Radio 3’s Big Red Nose Show, which takes place on 14 March 2011 at the Royal Albert Hall.
