This year it is Thomas & Friends 70th birthday, can you believe little Thomas has been entertaining our children for 70 years? To celebrate 2015 as the year of friendship for Thomas & Friends, and to mark the iconic brand’s 70th birthday, primary school classes across the country are being invited to enter a singing competition to win the chance to record a new song for the upcoming film release this autumn.


Judges are looking for the best, most creative singers in the country to be in with a chance of scooping the top prize package for their entire class, which includes…

  • An all-expenses paid trip to a recording studio to sing and record the Thomas & Friends theme tune which will feature on a special anniversary DVD
  • A half-day musical experience run by a music specialist
  • £200 worth of musical instruments
  • A visit from The Fat Controller

All schools who register for the competition via the National Schools Partnership website will receive a free downloadable resource pack, full of fun and simple activities linked to numeracy, literacy, PE and art and design, to help engage and inspire children to make their entry stand out.
