On Song for “Poptastic” Music Festival

Senior choir members at Newington Community Primary School in Ramsgate are putting in extra rehearsals at home to ensure they hit the right note at this year’s primary school Festival of Song.

The recent icy weather cut short a planned rehearsal with all the other schools involved so the Newington team decided to step up their practice by doing extra singing at home, mastering melodies and learning lyrics.

Music teacher Warwick Eldred said:

“Each school involved is permitted 18 pupils to take part and the choir will consist mainly of Year 6 children.

The theme this year is ‘Pop Music Through the Decades’ and the performance will include songs by Queen, Take That and Justin Timberlake.

It is a huge honour to perform at the Margate Winter Gardens and we cannot wait to once more take part in this annual inter-school event.

Our Newington singers say it will be Poptastic!”

The show is on Tuesday, March 20 at 7 pm at The Wintergardens, Margate.
