Sidcot School will go ahead with its traditional Christmas concert this year, virtually.

The school has confirmed that due to the coronavirus pandemic, current restrictions left no alternative and that its students wanted to "spread good cheer for Christmas".

Despite taking place via live stream, Sidcot's director of music said students have put just as much effort into their performances.

Paul Woolley said: "The children have put in a huge effort and the performance stands to be something very special."

A selection of classic carols will be performed, with subtitles for all viewers to sing-along to.

“Some people will feel isolated and we hope that this event can bring some festive relief, that families will get together to sing along and care homes can use this event to start their Christmas festivities.”
