FIVE months of singing and dancing practice came to fruition for youngsters from Hollycombe Primary School when they perormed at the O2 Arena in London.

They performed as part of a 7,000-strong choir in the annual Young Voices event at the Greenwich venue.

And this year the children had the opportunity to sing with Britain's Got Talent winner Connie Talbot as well as the African Children's Choir when they appeared at the south London concert venue in the old Millennium Dome building on January 15.

They held a separate performance back at school so the rest of the school could enjoy the 13 songs they had learned for the occasion. The whole event was a truly memorable experience that the children will certainly never forget and are very keen to repeat next year.
