Young Voices 2018, Thursday 1 February 2018: All of Key Stage 2 will set off for the O2 after we have completed our first lessons.

We get to London in time to eat a packed lunch, get seated, and start rehearsals at 2.30 pm. After a break, and tea, we perform in the concert from 7.00 to 9.00 pm. Our choir will be singing with thousands of other singers, in a wall of sound.

Young Voices aim to give children the experience of working under the direction of a professional conductor and being inspired by the singers who are already established in the entertainment industry.

Although we all need to be here for 8.40 am on Friday, it will be a less demanding day, beginning with torches in the hall!

For those parents who are travelling up to London for the evening performance, you will find The Hendreds Choir in seating block 103!

What children need on the day:

  • School Uniform, but as the event is filmed, we are asked to wear white tops, so the children will wear their white PE tops;
  • A packed lunch and tea, in a small back pack or carrier, as it will be stored, with their coat, under their seat.       No cans or glass bottles. So that the children can manage easily, filled rolls, sandwiches, apples, bananas and a plastic bottle of water are recommended.

Return to East Hendred: as the concert finishes at 9.00 pm, we will be back late; approximately 11.00 pm, depending on traffic. We will be communicating our arrival time by Google Mail group and on the school website. When picking up your children please be considerate to the neighbours around the Church.

In order to pay for transport, we would appreciate any outstanding contributions (£15) by Friday 9 February 2018.
