THE MUSICAL talents of children from schools in the area were showcased at a spectacular Christmas concert at the Colston Hall.

The annual concert was hosted by King’s Oak Academy and included six of the academy’s partner primary schools - Beacon Rise, Courtney, Cadbury Heath, The Park, Park Wall  and the Tynings.

More than 450 youngsters from Years 3 to 13 took to the stage performing a range of songs including Thank you for the Music, You Raise Me Up, Shine, Heal the World and the Camel Boogie Woogie.

There was also a medley of Christmas songs to get the audience in a festive mood.

Other acts included steel bands, drum groups, rock bands, and soloists.  

The audience also played their part by singing along to their favourite tunes and Christmas songs.

The annual Colston Hall concert was produced and directed by Tim Warren, King's Oak's team leader of performance and participation.

He said: "This concert is part of the continuing work between our academy and our partner primaries which covers many areas of the curriculum. The students, pupils and staff really enjoyed the event and worked really well together. 

"They put on a fantastic performance which was thoroughly enjoyed by the audience."

A collection was taken in aid of Kingswood-based charity Jessie May, the chosen charity of the academy's music department.
