In April 2012 English Pocket Opera Company (EPOC), against the background of the recent exciting changes to the framework for the provision of music education in England, moved to Primrose Hill Primary School in the London Borough  Camden. The work of EPOC will be part of a broad offer to:

  • the school (and, over time, its arts and  music curriculum);
  • the school’s  local community;
  • the local Music Service (and its constituent schools and providers); and
  • the Local Education Authority.

EPOC has already undertaken a number of projects with the school and have many exciting activities planned.
