Aylsham children sing at O2 concert
Choristers from Aylsham's Bure Valley School joined thousands of other young singers at London's 02 Arena for a sell-out concert.
The Young Voices event earlier this month, billed as the largest children's concert in the world, saw some 8,000 schoolboys and girls gather to perform from across the UK.
They sang a selection of songs which included an arrangement of Bright Eyes, a Michael Jackson tribute and a pop medley featuring hits by JLS, Alexandra Burke and Lady Gaga which was a particular favourite with the Bure Valley choir, according to their music leader Abby Lowe.
The children, aged seven to 11, had been practising since September last year with Miss Lowe and Bure Valley parent Penny Taylor.
They had enjoyed a fantastic day in London with afternoon rehearsals in the arena, followed by the evening performance conducted by David Lawrence, said Miss Lowe.
