17-01-2019 Young Voices Final Information


17th January 2019

O2 Choir Event – 30th January 2019


Dear Parents/Carers,


It is nearly time for the Young Voices choir at the O2. We have had some wonderful practise performances and are looking forward to it very much.


Thank you to all the parents who have booked and paid for their tickets. These have now arrived and are at the school office ready for you to collect. Please remember to bring them on the day! All tickets are now sold out.


We have booked a coach for adults to travel down to the venue. If you have booked and paid for a space a separate letter will be coming out shortly. Unfortunately the coach is now full.


It is a long day and the children will need to take sufficient food and drink with them for lunch and dinner. We would suggest a hearty breakfast before school too and a good quality and quantity packed lunch. If your child is entitled to Free School Meals please inform the School Office if you would like school to provide a packed lunch. However, please note this will only involve a standard packed lunch and not enough food for the entire day.


The children will need to wear a PLAIN WHITE T-SHIRT and DARK TROUSERS OR SKIRT on the day. If you have ordered the t-shirt pack from Young Voices, we will give these to the children on the day.


Children will travel to and from the event with staff, unless otherwise specifically arranged with me. You will not be permitted to take your child from the arena after the concert for security and safety reasons; if you wish your child to travel home with you, please arrange with the office in advance and we will hand over outside the venue.


Please keep encouraging your children to keep singing so that they know the songs off by heart. They are doing a wonderful job and we are nearly there with all of them. The songs are available on the school website, just click on learning and subject pages to find links to music and choir (at the bottom of the page).


Yours faithfully,



Mr C Fenelon – Choir Lead


Itinerary and handy tips:

  • Your child needs to be at school at the normal time. After register we will gather in the hall and set off for London.

  • Please ensure you collect your tickets form the School Office. The parents’ coach leaves promptly at 3:00pm. Doors open at 5pm. The concert starts at 7:00pm.

  • Don’t forget to pack plenty of food and drink (no fizzy drinks or glass bottles please). Your child needs lunch, dinner and snacks as well as plenty to drink. Please pack this in a rucksack. If your child is entitled to a free school meal and you have requested it, a basic lunch will be provided but this is not enough for dinner too.

  • If you have ordered a Young Voices t-shirt, they are on their way to us, the children can wear it with dark trousers or skirt. If your child has not ordered a t-shirt they will need to wear a plain white t-shirt.

  • There may be extra security checks and it may take longer to get in to the arena. Please make sure you visit the arena's website to check on what is allowed under new regulations (bag sizes etc).
