Christmas came early for four-year-old Anja when she met Birmingham music legend Roy Wood on the site of Symphony Hall's £13.2million foyer redevelopment.

Roy, formerly of E.L.O., Wizzard and The Move, was in the city to prepare for his performance at his annual Rockmas gig at Symphony Hall, which will feature the ten-piece Roy Wood Rock & Roll Band and guests. This year's concert from the I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday songwriter features special guests Mari Wilson, the Climax Blues Band, Mick Miller and Enigma Strings, as well as a number of surprises.

Ukulele-playing Anja is a member of The Strings Club, an award-winning music education company, which has recently been hosting Discovery Days at Symphony Hall to offer children age 4-11 a range of high-quality musical experiences to ignite and inspire children’s love of music.

When Anja met Roy she presented him with his own special ukulele as an early Christmas present.

The Making an Entrance project will deliver an extraordinary transformation of Symphony Hall: the state-of-the-art redevelopment will create dedicated spaces to host learning and participation projects and support a vital education programme that reaches over 24,000 people every year.
