CHILDREN from six schools made music and listened to professional musicians at the annual Primary Schools’ Music Festival.

Pupils from three Spalding schools – Ayscoughfee Hall, St John the Baptist and St Paul’s – were joined by youngsters from Holbeach Primary, William Stukeley at Holbeach and Long Sutton Primary.

They spent a morning making music, listening to and performing with each other, and an afternoon enjoying and joining in music from a professional duo, Travelling by Tuba.

The concert was organised by a music festival committee with sponsorship from Baytree Nurseries.

Committee chairman Vicki Twell said the event was based on an Olympics theme.

She said the primary schools’ festival has been running for 31 years and the professional workshop/concert is always stimulating and exciting for both children and teachers.

Teacher Nicola Laud, from host school Ayscoughfee, said the festival gave 200 children from different schools an opportunity to share their own music and watch “the fantastic Travelling by Tuba performance”.
