Pupils from across Norfolk are invited to take part in The Grand Sing with Gareth Malone!

This year we are partnering with Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association, Charanga, Big Sky Creative and Gareth Malone to bring an exciting opportunity for you to join us live at the Royal Norfolk Show in the Grand Ring.

We have selected a fantastic arrangement of songs which will be hosted on Charanga and performed by young people from across Norfolk in the Grand Ring, led by Gareth Malone.

When are the resources available?
