Kessingland choir heading for London 02 arena
It is a venue preserved for the mega stars of the music industry.
But the O2 arena in London will soon be filled with the warm choral voices of a children's choir from Kessingland.
These youngsters at Kessingland Primary School are busy preparing to sing at the Young Voices Concert, billed as the largest school choir concert in the world.
The event on Wednesday, March 7 will see 30 pupils from year four to year six singing pop medleys and songs by the rock band Queen with 8,000 school children from across the country.
Sarah Smith, year three teacher and music co-ordinator at the school, said: 'It is a chance for our pupils to work with other schools and have a memorable experience of performing at the O2 arena. They have worked really hard and it is nice to see it repaid with this opportunity.'
