Talented singers from a Weymouth school took to the stage at the O2 Arena to be part of one of the biggest children's choir concerts in the world.

Members of the school choir at Holy Trinity Primary School made a very special trip to London to take part in the Young Voices Concert.

The pupils were said to be 'so excited' to take part in 'such an amazing experience' which involved nearly 8,000 children from across the UK.

After months of planning and rehearsals, the Holy Trinity choir travelled by coach to the O2 Arena in London.

A spokesman for the school said: "It was an incredibly exciting once in a lifetime experience for the children and a very long day as they didn’t get home until the early hours of the morning."

They added the students had been dedicatedly rehearsing since September to learn 18 songs - some of which were specially written for the event.

The students favourite song was a pop medley which included songs by Robbie Williams, Rag’n’Bone Man and Ed Sheeran and the choir even choreographed their own routine for their big finale.

Trip organiser, Emma Allan said: "The concert was obviously a big commitment for the kids especially because of the timing of it. We were preparing in the run up to Christmas when we also had our Christmas concert so the students were having two rehearsals a week."

The choir was supported by their parents who also travelled to London to experience the incredible event with several writing in messages of thanks to the school.

One parent commented, as her daughter is now in her last year at Holy Trinity: "Hearing her sing Angels was very emotional as it highlighted her coming to the end of an era of her life. This trip will definitely be one of her best memories that will never be forgotten."

Many were enthusiastic in their praise for Mrs Allen who organised the choir’s participation in the event.

Mrs Allen made a banner for the children to hold to ensure that their parents could see exactly where they were sitting.

She even ensured all the Holy Trinity Primary children were wearing sparkly hats so that they were easy for parents to see and locate afterwards.

To date, more than two million children have taken part in a Young Voices concert which aim to inspire the next generation to find their love for music.
