Harrogate Rural Schools Charity Concert

8:00am 19th March 2017

Several schools will once again be showcasing children's talents at the Royal Hall in Harrogate.

More than 200 youngsters are going to perform in the Harrogate Rural Schools Charity Concert on Tuesday.

This year, children will come from from Killinghall CE Primary, Beckwithshaw Primary, Scotton Lingerfield Primary, Goldsborough CE Primary, Spofforth CE Primary, Sicklinghall Primary and Folifoot CE Primary.

Each school is represented by their choir, with a wide range of songs from various genres, along with dancing, and movement is also included.

The concert will start and finish with all of the children on stage as a huge joint choir.

The finale is a tribute to the Beatles, lasting nearly 15 minutes.

Last year's concert raised nearly £3,000 for Martin House Children's Hospice near Wetherby and the Just 'B' bereavement support service in Harrogate.

Headteacher of Killinghall CE Primary School, Sarah Bassitt, who organises the concert along with Killinghall's choir leader, Helen Potter, said: "This is a fantastic example of children fundraising to support other children and young people in their area.

"The original idea for the concert came from the children at Killinghall who decided that they wanted to do a big concert for charities that would benefit other children. It has been amazing how it has all come together to be an annual event.

"I am very proud of the efforts of all those involved and hope that this year's concert will again show such positivity and enthusiasm from the children and the audience."

The concert will again be co-hosted by Stray FM's Nick Hancock.

Tickets are available from Harrogate Theatre Box Office.
