Children from Henham and Ugley Primary School were given the opportunity of a lifetime when they were invited to participate in a charity concert at the Royal Albert Hall.
The 40-strong choir of Year 4, 5 and 6 pupils joined with 40 other schools to form a massed choir of over 1000 children.
The concert was in aid of Barnardo’s and more than £50,000 was raised for the charity.
After many weeks of preparation at school, the choir spent a whole day rehearsing with renowned conductor Sir Douglas Coombes before performing to a packed audience at the historic venue, which included more than 150 of the children’s family and friends.
The programme featured everything from Disney classics to tongue twisters and popular songs, and culminated with a spectacular version of the flag waving Last Night of the Proms classic; Land of Hope and Glory.

Headteacher Sue Giles said: “Our children were incredible. They worked really hard to prepare for the day and I feel very proud of what they have achieved. It is wonderful to see the children using their talents to help raise money for such a worthwhile charity.”
