Weston singers joined quartet for festive numbers including O Holy Night, Silent Night and Walking in the Air. They also performed two of their own songs, Sleigh Ride and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.

Lydia MacRitchie, principal at PQA Weston, said: "We are delighted that our students have been asked to perform alongside G4 at Wells Cathedral.
