More than 300 Clevedon schoolchildren will raise the roof in the centre of town this month.

Pupils from St. Nicholas’ Chantry, Yeo Moor, Mary Elton, St John’s, Tickenham, All Saints and Clevedon School will gather together to perform popular songs for the public.

Passers-by are invited to attend the choir’s medley of modern melodies.

The event has been run annually since 2012 but this is the first year the organisers have decided to nominate a charity to support.

Head of St Nicholas’ Chantry School, Peter Treasure-Smith said: “We wanted to support MARLENS in recognition of their school activity events on Clevedon Marine Lake which our pupils have benefitted from for many years.”

The charity is behind the management, maintenance and development of the lake and will have a gazebo at the event, which will start at 10am on June 29.
