Youngsters from a community music club put on a performance to mark the end of the year.

Scarlet Community Music Club, which is made up of children from all over South Holland, performed Glint of Gold to the audience at Quadring Village Hall.

The play is based on Howard Carter’s famous discovery of Tutankahmun’s tomb, and teaches the audience all about hieroglyphs, Queen Hatshepsut, Egyptian society, the gods and pyramids.

The club, which is a non- profit organisation, was set up in 2004 and delivers music workshops to children in the area. Under the direction of Liz Lenton, who produced and directed the show, the children put on a performance with over 25 each playing a specific role, such as Howard Carter himself and several hieroglyphs who help to tell the story by coming to life in order to teach the audience about Ancient Egypt.

Before the show, entertainment was delivered by special guests Choir Vibe, the South Holland Contemporary Community Youth Club, who are also led by professional musician, agent and performer Liz.
