Redbridge Music Service held the annual Redbridge Schools’ Recorder Festival across two evenings, which saw 250 primary and secondary school pupils entertain residents.

The shows featured a range of classic and more modern songs and both finished with performances of Tequila, with the instruments adorned with sun hats and ribbons.

Many of the schools included a solo item and teachers also took part in a performance.

Organiser Maggie Goble said: “I was delighted with the children’s standard of performance and I am constantly impressed by how much their dedicated teachers manage to fit into the school day.”
