Sixty young singers from Sheringham Primary School will be setting off to London this week, to be part of the biggest children’s choir in the world.

The seven to 11-year-olds, who are members of the Sheringham Primary’s junior and after-school choirs, have been rehearsing since September for Young Voices, an annual event that sees more than 120,000 primary school children perform folk, pop, rock and classical songs with top musicians and artists at some of the country’s biggest venues.

The Sheringham youngsters will be travelling to the O2 Arena with music teacher Jon Cooper, choir leader Jenny Skivington and nearly 70 staff and parents.

“We took 25 children last year and they said it was one of the best days of their year, if not their lives,” Mr Cooper said. “It was an amazing experience and just to be part of such a huge choir really sends tingles down your spine.”
