Schools from around the borough came together for a music festival with glorious gospel and buzzing blues ringing through an Ilford church.

Year 4, 5 and 6 children from almost 20 schools took part in the festival over four afternoons at St Andrew’s Church, The Drive.

Originally there was only meant to be one performance but so many schools were keen to take part that additional shows were put on.

Previously the festivals have been arranged for younger children and this was the first time one was put on for this age group.
