  • Thursday 2 February 2023 Young Voices Concert at O2 Arena, London On Tuesday 24th January, the junior Musical Theatre club at the junior school travelled to London to take part in the largest children’s choir concert in the world; a total of 9,099 children on the night performed together to sing and dance to a wide range of songs. They were lucky enough to experience a variety of genres and perform with artists including, but not limited to: The Beatbox Collective, violinist Anna Phoebe and British soul singer Heather Small who they recorded a charity single with that will be released this year. The children were remarkably well-behaved, being excellent representatives of the school who we are all very proud of. Thank you to Mrs Jones, Mrs Shuttleworth and Mrs Green for making this a truly memorable experience.
