Young Voices 2022 - Friday 29th April

UPDATE 14.10 - We’ve arrived at the arena and rehearsals are underway!

Year 5 are really excited for the Young Voices concert this Friday (29th April) at the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham. 

Clothes and Medication
If you ordered t-shirts for your child, we will give these out on the day. It is important for the lighting effects that we are all wearing white tops or the official young voices t-shirt.  We have also been requested to wear school trousers or skirts. Please send your child to school in an appropriate white t-shirt unless they have purchased a Young Voices t-shirt. If your child uses an inhaler or any other essential medical items, please ensure these are up to date and at school on the day.  If your child does not have them, then we are unable to take your child on the trip.

Travel to the Arena
We will travel to Birmingham by coach, leaving school at approximately 12.30pm. Children will have lunch in school like normal at 11.45am.  If your child normally has a packed lunch, please send this in a plastic bag rather than a lunch box as children will not be able to take their lunch box to the Arena with them. ALL CHILDREN WILL ALSO NEED A ‘PACKED TEA’ – THERE IS MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS BELOW. 

At the Arena
At the Arena, we spend the majority of the afternoon rehearsing with the musical director and the band.  The children have to work incredibly hard during this time but learn many new skills and have an experience they will remember for years to come. We get approximately a one-hour break at teatime to relax and eat our tea together.  Please provide your child with a packed tea and drinks in a named, plastic bag for this time.  No fizzy drinks or high-in-sugar items please.  No glass containers are allowed in the arena and bags will be checked by Arena staff. Children are not allowed to bring electronic gadgets or toys because there is nowhere to store things and they may get lost or broken. Children are not allowed to have mobile phones with them, therefore please ensure they do not bring one to school on that day or it will have to be stored overnight in the school office.

Travelling Back to School
We expect to be back at school at approximately 10pm. All children will return to school after the performance to be picked up. It is not possible to collect from the Arena. 

If you have ordered tickets please collect them from the school office.  You will be seated close together.  We will have a banner, so look for the banner and you should see us all. 
If your child is not attending the event, they will be expected to attend school on Friday.  They will be working in school with Miss Cash.

It is going to be an amazing experience.  The children have worked so hard and we are very proud of them. I know they will be talking about it for a long time afterwards.
