MUSICAL youngsters from the Ridgeway School took to the stage in London.

Children from the Warwick school were part of a 2,000 strong choir who performed with a live band and celebrity singers at the Royal Albert Hall.

Over 100 Armonico Consort Academy choirs came together to perform a mix of songs, from The Drunken Sailor to a Les Misérables medley.

Headteacher Debra Hewitt said: “It was an honour and a privilege to work with Armonico to give some of our children the opportunity to perform at the Royal Albert Hall.

“The children were in awe of the size and grandeur of the venue and they loved their guided tour, especially sitting in the boxes and looking down from the very top.

“Music is a very important part of our school curriculum and the children benefit in so many ways from performing in an inclusive environment as equals. We are grateful to Phillips 66 for making this memorable event happen.”
